Calgary Police Commission Chair Brian Thiessen said they’ve made progress on the human resources file for the Calgary Police Service, but it’s still going to take some time.
Thiessen, in his year-end interview with 660 News, admits he was caught off-guard earlier this year with the public resignation of Constable Jennifer Magnus-Ward.
However, he said they’ve taken giant steps and have made progress on the issues facing the service.
“I think that the service can always do better and certainly there are areas that they needed to improve,” said Thiessen. “Would I call those mistakes, I guess every organization goes through challenges and has to rise to it, the service has done that.”
Magnus-Ward, a 14-year veteran of the force, claimed she was bullied and sexually harassed, she tearfully quit in front of the commission back in January.
