Message from the Chief


On behalf of the Officers and staff of the Prince Albert Police Service I would like to welcome you to our website. 

The Prince Albert Police Service was formed in 1886 and has grown into a modern and professional agency employing 91 sworn police officers, 5 bylaw officers, a dispatch center and  28 civilian support staff . I am very proud to lead an agency that sets the standard for innovation, dedication and community service.  

The City of Prince Albert is a hub and a destination point for many surrounding towns and First Nations. In order to provide service in this transient environment we have an integrated relationship with the RCMP that allows us to offer a regional response to issues such as drug trafficking, organized criminal activity and intelligence gathering.  We also have strong and formal relationships with our partners in Health, Social Services, Education and the Prince Albert Grand Council. Partnering and mobilizing our community to enhance public safety will continue to be a priority for us. 

We are fortunate to police in a community that is rich in history and culture. Our workforce is reflective of our community and we value the strength that diversity offers.  Cultural programs and strong community connections and are an integral part of our organization. 

We are a busy and exciting Service that values personal growth and provides opportunities to explore different sections and assignments. If you are interested in a career with us, volunteering or have a general interest in our Police Service please take the time to explore our website to learn more about us. Our directory link provides contact information if we can be of assistance, or you can e-mail us through this site as well.

Troy Cooper M.O.M.
Chief of Police
