FROM LETHBRIDGE POLICE COLLECTION. FORMAL DRESS UNIFORM; WOULD BE WORN WITH RED BELT, WHITE GLOVES AND WELLINGTONS. DON LEE CLAIMED IN 2006 THAT THE UNIFORM’S SERGEANTS’ CHEVRON WAS ADDED IN 1981. BASED ON CHEVRON’S LACK OF CROWN AND 3 STARS (1 FOR EVERY FIVE YEARS) ON OPPOSITE ARM’S CUFF, HE WOULD DATE UNIFORM’S LAST DAYS OF WEAR TO APPROXIMATELY 1982. THE GOLD LANYARD WAS STANDARD WEAR WITH THE DRESS TUNIC. ANYONE WEARING THE NON-DRESS, SERVICE TUNIC WORE A WHITE LANYARD. THE UNIFORM WAS THE FIRST FORMAL TUNIC OF ITS KIND TO BE ISSUED TO POLICE OFFICERS. LEE RECALLED WEARING IT ON REMEMBRANCE DAYS, FOR MEDAL CEREMONIES AND FOR THE POLICEMAN’S BALL. IT CAME WITH A WIDE-STRIPPED PANT THAT FEATURED AN ELASTIC STRAP THAT WENT AROUND THE WEARER’S BOOT HEEL. THE PANTS WERE WORN SUSPENDERS – NO BELT. LEE BEGAN HIS SERVICE WITH THE LETHBRIDGE CITY POLICE IN 1967. IN 1995, BY THE TIME OF HIS RETIREMENT, HE HAD BEEN PROMOTED UP THROUGH THE RANKS TO THE OFFICE OF ACTING CHIEF OF POLICE. HIGHLIGHTS OF HIS SERVICE INCLUDE SUPERVISING 70 UNIFORMED RANKS IN TRAFFIC AND PATROL DIVISIONS, 2ND IN COMMAND FOR MAJOR CRIME INVESTIGATION, S.W.A.T. COMMANDER AND MEMBER RECRUITING AND TRAINING.

THE FOLLOWING NARRATIVE WAS PRODUCED BY GALT TECH KEVIN MACLEAN AS THE RESULT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXHIBIT ON THE POLICE AUXILIARY IN 2009. SOURCES CONSULTED INCLUDED SEVERAL INTERVIEWS WITH SERVING AND RETIRED MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICE, A RETIRED MEMBER OF THE CIVIL DEFENCE POLICE, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND THE CITY MANAGER’S RECORDS IN THE GALT ARCHIVES. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE REFERENCE THE ARTIFACT’S PERMANENT FILE AND RELEVANT ARTIFACT P19960112110. ALSO SEE E. KREEFT INTERVIEW IN FILE 20090009001/2. FOR OVER HALF A CENTURY AN “AUXILIARY” EXISTED WITHIN THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICE. WHAT DEFINED “AUXILIARY”, HOWEVER, IS ANOTHER MATTER. THE “AUXILIARY” INCLUDED SUPPORT POSITIONS FROM MATRONS TO THE JANITOR AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN - CONTRACTED WARDENS, THE CITY POUND KEEPER, SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS (1966) AND “CHALK MARKERS” WHO ENFORCED PARKING REGULATIONS. FOR A TIME IN 1955 THE MARKERS WERE POLICE SPECIAL CONSTABLES, BUT ULTIMATELY THAT JOB WAS CONTRACTED TO THE COMMISSIONAIRES IN 1959. INCLUDED AMONG THIS VARIETY OF JOBS WERE THE “AUXILIARY POLICE”. AT TIMES FROM THE 1950S UNTIL TODAY, SWORN, TRAINED AUXILIARY MEMBERS PROVIDED BOOTS-ON-THE-GROUND SUPPORT TO CONSTABLES ON PATROL. PAID AND UNPAID, THE AUXILIARY POLICE WERE OCCASIONALLY JUSTIFIED AS A NECESSARY RESERVE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. AT ITS ROOT, HOWEVER, THE AUXILIARY WAS A RECRUITING TOOL, ALLOWING THE POLICE TO SELECT FUTURE CONSTABLES FROM A POOL OF CITIZENS WHO ALREADY KNEW THE INS AND OUTS POLICE WORK. IN 1958, THE POLICE INITIATED A PROGRAM WHICH INVITED YOUNG MEN TO SERVE WITH THE CITY POLICE AS CADET CONSTABLES. THE CADETS NEEDED TO HAVE COMPLETED TWO YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL, WERE PAID, UNARMED AND DID NOT HAVE FULL POWERS OF ARREST. CHIEF CONSTABLE CARPENTER ADVOCATED FOR THE USE OF CADETS, SAYING, “THEY RELIEVED REGULAR OFFICERS FOR MORE SERIOUS ASPECTS OF POLICE WORK.” THE PROGRAM, HOWEVER, WAS ABOLISHED WITHIN MONTHS DUE TO A GRIEVANCE BY THE POLICE ASSOCIATION. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROGRAM’S DEMISE, THREE OF THE CADETS, INCLUDING ALEXANDER PARK AND WILLIAM ALBERTSON, WERE HIRED AS PROBATIONARY CONSTABLES. THE FORCE REINSTATED ITS CONTROVERSIAL AUXILIARY-STYLE PROGRAM IN 1962. RETIRED INSPECTOR BILL PLOMP, WHO VOLUNTEERED IN 1962, RECALLED OF THE “EXPERIMENTAL” PROGRAM IN 2009, “IF WE DIDN’T FOLLOW THIS PROCESS THEN WE WOULDN’T BE CONSIDERED FOR HIRING.” IN ADDITION TO ATTENDING WEEKLY CLASSES, HE WALKED THE 8 - 12 P.M. BEAT WITH A “MENTOR” FORCE MEMBER. IN 1964, THE CITY ANNOUNCED ITS PLAN TO RECRUIT A 25-MEMBER VOLUNTEER AUXILIARY FORCE, COINCIDING WITH THE DEMISE OF THE CIVIL DEFENSE POLICE. OPERATING UNDER THE CONTROL OF POLICE CHIEF CARPENTER, IT WAS, ACCORDING TO THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, TO TAKE PART IN REGULAR PATROLS AND TO ENHANCE PROTECTION IN TIMES OF A CIVIL EMERGENCY. RETIRED CONSTABLE LEON BRUNEAU SAW THE HERALD ARTICLE AND VOLUNTEERED - “THOSE WERE THE DAYS WHERE EXCITEMENT WAS A BIG THING FOR ME” HE SAID IN 2009. AS FOR THE AUXILIARY AFTER 1964, HE STATED, “I THINK THAT WAS THE END OF IT … THE WHOLE THING JUST DRIED UP.” BEGINNING 1979, THE FORCE ACCESSED SUMMER EMPLOYMENT GRANTS TO HIRE LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE CRIMINAL JUSTICE STUDENTS TO ASSIST WITH COURT DETAIL AND IDENTIFICATION SECTION WORK. IN 2009, INSPECTOR COLIN CATONIO, A COURT ORDERLY SERVING IN 1979, SAID, “[COURT DETAIL] WOULD NEED SOME SUPPORT, SO RATHER THAN PULL A CONSTABLE FROM THE STREET THEY FELT THE ROLE COULD BE FILLED BY A STUDENT.” THE PROGRAM WAS OF BENEFIT TO BOTH THE FORCE AND THE STUDENTS. RETIRED CONSTABLE ERNIE KREEFT REMARKED IN 2009 ABOUT THE STUDENTS, “[THE FORCE] GOT A GOOD INSIGHT INTO THE TYPE OF PERSON THEY WERE AND IF THEY WOULD BE A SUITABLE CANDIDATE.” ADDED CATONIO, “[REGULAR MEMBERS] THAT HAVE THE INCLINATION TO BE GOOD TEACHERS AND ROLE MODELS REALLY APPRECIATED HAVING SOMEONE WITH THEM [WHO] THEY COULD SHOW SOME STUFF AND HELP ALONG WITH THEIR CAREERS.” BY 2008, THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICE CONTINUED TO UTILIZE PAID STUDENTS WITH A DIFFERENCE - THEY NO LONGER WORE A UNIFORM. BASED ON PUBLISHED LETHBRIDGE HERALD PHOTOGRAPHS, THE UNIFORM'S HALF-MOON FLASH WAS INSTITUTED IN 1961 AND DISCONTINUED IN 1991. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES.
