Police Chief Rick Hanson explains how our community came together to respond to the worst natural disaster in our city’s history.
From the evacuation of approximately 100,000 Calgarians in an exceptionally short amount of time, to the recovery efforts that saw Calgarians from every corner pitch in to do their part; members of the Calgary Police Service (CPS) saw our community band together. Working with emergency partners, CPS was able to help the city’s most vulnerable and ensure those impacted by the flood found assistance during their time of need.
The patience, understanding and cooperation of all Calgarians during this time, was of tremendous assistance to the Calgary Police Service, allowing for us to keep our city safe.
