I bring attention to this because I worked for the establishment of civilian oversight of our RCMP in St Albert for well over a year. I did so because of the overwhelming evidence that the City was not managing our police resources in a manner that reflected our community’s interests and needs. It will be fixed starting in the New Year when the St. Albert Policing Committee will be fully functional. 

Quoted from the St Albert Gazette (July 22, 2017) re: RCMP Insp. Robinson…

"City council approved of Robinson due to her support for community policing and initiatives such as bike and golf-cart patrols on the trail system, said Mayor Nolan Crouse.”

This is an example of why it was so important to fight for and implement civilian oversight of our police. We already have an excess of officers assigned to duties that serve mostly public relations exercises on behalf of the Mayor. We have demonstrated in many ways why that type of deployment is counterproductive to all the other important public safety, officer safety and crime prevention objectives that should be the focus of our community's police officer's efforts. (Go to policingstalbert.ca for all related data and reviews.)

Turns out, the Mayor did not consult with Council. In fact, the majority of Council members surveyed reported they had NO deliberations or notifications about this selection. This follows the pattern observed in City Hall where the Mayor was the sole steadfast opponent of the Policing Committee proposal. Now, he suggests that Council made the selection based on what was clearly his own agenda and was soundly refuted by the 6 other Council members during various votes. 

Although there is no reason to be concerned about the selection of Insp. Robinson, it was not a ‘Council’ decision at all. Which has been a consistent problem for years.

I’m pretty sure that Insp. Robinson was not fooled by what the Mayor was suggesting. The message has been loud and clear for some time now... the status quo is no longer acceptable to our community. 

As a three year resident of St Albert, Insp. Robinson will understand.

I am not aware about the job description of a RCMP inspector. In what kind of industry is this all about? Is it in the manufacturing or service industry? I am in the medical field so I am not that aware. I must say that I learned a lot from this website. I've been reading your articles for a while now.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is the Canadian national police force. Any comments in that vein are related to policing.
Thanks for your comment.

If Insp. Robinson deserves the spot, then let her be. She's given a huge responsibility to fulfill and let's just hope that shoe could carry all the burden above her shoulders. On the other hand, I believe that the process of election should have undergone the right process. It's kind of unfair for other people who desired to got the position but was never a favorite. Since Robinson was elected already, what she should do right now is to prove that she deserves that position.
