OBS

Through the Provincial Police Service Agreement, the RCMP is given primary policing responsibility for about 22 per cent of Alberta's population. This includes every town, village and summer village with populations of 5,000 or less, every municipal district and Metis settlement regardless of population, and in First Nations where other policing arrangements have not been made. The Solicitor General's Public Security Division oversees the PPSA, and works with the RCMP to set annual priorities and goals. The RCMP has always acted as Alberta's provincial police service, except for a 15-year period after the First World War.
