The Community Standards Unit is a component of the Taber Police Service that consists of one Community Standards Officer, and in the spring/summer months, it expands to include two full time seasonal Bylaw Officers.
The Community Standards Officer is a police officer whose roles and responsibilities are not limited to, but are focused on, the enforcement of Taber Municipal Bylaws and /or Provincial Statues/Regulations, as directed by the Chief of Police. Due to their appointment, a Community Standards Officer has full authority under the Criminal Code of Canada and applicable Federal Statutes; however, the role and execution of those authorities is guided by policy.
A large focus of the Community Standards Unit is to patrol the community and respond to calls for service for reported violations of Community Standards and bylaw infractions including but not limited to, unsightly premises, animal control, parked vehicles, unnecessary noise, noxious weeds, moving and non-moving traffic offences etc.
