Fort Macleod Police College To Finally Move Forward

 
 
Fort Macleod:   A day that Fort Macleod town officials and residents having been waiting for.

  Premier Ed Stelmach was in town Thursday, as part of a Caucus tour, and announced that construction will start by the summer of 2012, on a state-of-the-art law enforcement training centre.

  The facility was first promised to the town in 2006 and was supposed to be under construction by 2007. However, it was side-tracked by an expanding price tag first thought to be around $60 million, but went as high as $260 million.

  Financial details on the Premier's announcement won't be released until next Thursday, when the next Provincial budget is released. That's prompted Fort Macleod Mayor Shaw Patience to temper his excitement.

  According to Patience, "Until we see the specifics in the budget next week, we're really not sure want we're dealing with". However, he notes, " the fact that we're moving ahead with it and the Premier is fulfilling the commitment that they made to this community in 2006 -- that's a great thing and I couldn't be happier."


  Premier Stelmach confirmed the budget will contain some money for the long awaited police college,
He also told Country-95 news, "The province is still working out details with some municipal police forces, but the college will also accommodate training for corrections officers and border patrol officers."

  The Police College will be built on Highway-2, just before Township Road 90, south of Fort Macleod.
