Public Safety

Many professional and volunteer organizations in the area work hard to make our community safer. If you have an emergency, call 911 immediately. Cochrane's Community Peace Officers enforce the Traffic Safety Act and other provincial traffic regulations, with priority given to school and playground zones, high complaint areas, and locations where officers observe numerous infractions.

Community Education First
Community Peace Officers prefer to use education to encourage voluntary compliance with bylaws, rather than enforce compliance with monetary fines. They focus on education, conflict resolution and mediation services and encourage residents to try and resolve conflicts whenever possible.
