Lethbridge Regional Police Service

The Lethbridge Regional Police Service (LRPS) has a mission of providing safe communities to the citizens of Coaldale and Lethbridge. With 155 sworn officers, 47 support staff and 43 volunteers the LRPS has us covered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With slightly more than 96,000 people living in those two communities, the Police Service has a better police to population ratio than most larger centres.

Police officers work tirelessly to make Lethbridge and Coaldale a safe place to live, work and do business. With a budget of slightly more than $23 million, the Police Service also relies on community volunteers to help out in the Victim and Witness Services Units for the people who need it most.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)

In support of community detachments, specialized units and investigation sections exist to support and enhance the police services offered by the RCMP. A few examples of these would be the Emergency Response Team, Police Service Dogs and Forensic Identification Section. Additional operational support available includes General Investigation Section and Major Crimes units, located at larger centres in Alberta. The Lethbridge County is served largely from the Lethbridge detachment, but an office in Picture Butte also serves the County.

Fire / Ambulance Services

The City’s Fire and Emergency Services Department responds to over 11,000 calls a year and provides fire, ambulance, rescue, and fire prevention for the City of Lethbridge and surrounding area. The department is a full-time integrated fire and ambulance service in which personnel serve dual roles as fire fighters and paramedics.

The Fire Prevention Branch provides fire investigation and inspection services and conducts many public education programs, including Learn not to Burn, Fire Extinguisher Training and Residential Smoke Alarm Replacement.

The department also coordinates the Municipal Emergency Preparedness plan, technical rescue services (such as water/ice rescue, high angle rescue, low slope rescue) and hazardous materials containment and mitigation.

Communities in the Lethbridge County are served by local Fire/EMS services, often provided by volunteers. Contact your local community for information on local services. Call 9-1-1 in an emergency.
