Cochrane Community Peace Officers (CPOs) listen, educate, inform and empower residents to understand community bylaws, concerns and risks, reducing violations and creating a safer space for all. By fostering and maintaining strong relationships, Cochrane Municipal Enforcement aims to create community that cares.

Community Peace Officers are committed to providing professional, effective and empathetic responses to the community. Their goal is to reduce violations by being visible and proactive, increasing community safety through awareness and relationship building.
Community Peace Officers ensure that roadways, sidewalks and pathways are safe for Cochrane residents and visitors. Through various provincial and municipal legislation, CPOs strive to meet these responsibilities using both education and enforcement.
Municipal Enforcement continues to work to educate the public on responsible pet ownership. They have front line responsibility for the enforcement and investigation of all domestic animal control calls.
Professional development is key in ensuring officers have the skills and training needed to handle calls and serve the community successfully.
Municipal Enforcement strives to be receptive to the growing needs of the community while focusing on improved communication to residents. This includes participation in community events, listening to residents, receiving direction and feedback from Town Council, as well as educating residents about local issues, safety programs and services.
