THIS LANYARD WAS INITIALLY SOLICITED AS A LOAN FOR THE 2008 EXHIBIT ‘BADGE MEETS BIBLE’. AT THAT TIME, RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED BY GALT COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTO THE HISTORY OF THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE FORCE’S CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM AND THE VICTIM/WITNESS SERVICES UNIT. VICTIM/WITNESS SERVICES WAS FOUNDED IN 1991, AND TOOK OVER SOME OF THE DUITES PREVIOUSLY PERFORMED BY POLICE CHAPLAINS WHEN THE CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM WAS DISBANDED IN 1997. DURING THE LATE 1990S VICTIMS’ SERVICES UNITS WERE BECOMING FAIRLY COMMON WITH POLICE SERVICES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. OVER A ONE-YEAR PERIOD IN 1994, THE LETHBRIDGE UNIT’S VOLUNTEERS HANDLED 747 FILES WHICH INCLUDED THE PROVISION OF SUPPORT SERVICES FOR THE VICTIMS AND FAMILIES OF ASSAULT, MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS, BREAK-INS, ROBBERIES AND SUICIDE. TODAY’S VICTIM/WITNESS SERVICES PROGRAM PROVIDES, AMONG OTHER THINGS, AN EMPATHETIC EAR, PERSONAL VISITS TO HOMES AND HOSPITALS, REFERRALS, AND COURT PREPARATION INFORMATION. THE UNIT IS FUNDED IN PART BY THE ALBERTA SOLICITOR-GENERAL AND THE CITY OF LETHRBIDGE. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR BROCHURES PRODUCED BY VICTIM/WITNESS SERVICES.

THIS STYLE OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE UNIFORM SHIRT WAS IN USE BETWEEN 1995 AND 2004. ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE IN THE FEBRUARY 22, 1996 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE DEPARTMENT TRANSITIONED FROM LIGHT BLUE TO DARK NAVY SHIRTS THAT YEAR TO REFLECT CHANGING TRENDS AND FURTHER DIFFERENTIATE OFFICERS FROM OTHER UNIFORMED OCCUPATIONS SUCH AS COMMISSIONAIRES AND POSTAL WORKERS. THE SHOULDER PATCHES ON THIS SHIRT READ “LETHBRIDGE POLICE”, DEMONSTRATING THAT THE SHIRT PREDATES THE DECEMBER 2004 UNVEILING OF THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE CREST, WHEN COALDALE WAS ADDED TO THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE JURISDICTION. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS ON THE EVOLUTION OF THE LRPS UNIFORM AND BADGE DESIGN. FOR A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19960112001.

SEE PERMANENT RECORD P19672511000 FOR INFORMATION ON THE BARROW FAMILY. *UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCESSORIES, INCLUDING THIS INFANT'S DRESS DONATED BY BRUCE G. BARROW. ATTACHED TO THE PERMANENT FILE IS A NOTE THAT STATES, “FROM THE ESTATE OF THE LATE MAJOR REV. GORE. M. BARROW. SOUVENIRS FROM THE BOER WAR, GREAT WAR I & II FROM BRUCE G BARROW.” FOR MORE INFORMATION OF MAJOR REV. GORE M. BARROW, INCLUDING A SUMMARY OF HIS ATTESTATION PAPERS, PLEASE SEE P19672511000. IT IS LIKELY THAT THE COLLECTION OF ARTIFACTS DONATED BY BRUCE G. BARROW ENDED UP IN LETHBRIDGE BECAUSE THEY WERE GIVEN TO BARROW BY HIS FATHER, WHO SPENT THE MAJORITY OF HIS LIFE IN ONTARIO. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD RESEARCH, BRUCE G. BARROW WAS BORN IN TORONTO. ON 26 JUNE 1937, HE MARRIED MURIEL ELIZABETH BOEHM AND TOGETHER THEY HAD A DAUGHTER, JUDITH (TONY) PAYNE. BARROW SERVED AS A CHOIRMASTER AND AN ORGANIST IN MANY CHURCHES, BEFORE COMING TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1951 WHERE HE SPENT TIME AT ST. AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH. HE RETIRED FROM THE CHURCH IN 1972 AND WORKED EXAMINING FOR TORONTO CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC. HE PASSED AWAY IN THE CITY ON 22 JUNE 1977 AT THE AGE OF 66 YEARS. IN 2018, PUNDYK CONNECTED WITH THE DONOR'S DAUGHTER, JUDITH PAYNE, IN AN ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN FURTHER ARTIFACT-SPECIFIC INFORMATION. NO FURTHER INFORMATION WAS ACQUIRED. PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19672526000 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, INCLUDING COPIES OF THE ARCHIVAL RESEARCH.

THIS DROP LEG HOLSTER WAS USED BY MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE TACTICAL UNIT. SERGEANT GEORGE CARSCADDEN, WHO SERVED WITH THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE TACTICAL UNIT FROM 1999 TO 2012, DESCRIBED THE USE OF THIS HOLSTER AS SUCH: “THIS IS ONE OF THE HOLSTERS FROM THE TACTICAL TEAM… I CAN SEE BY THE STYLE OF IT THAT IT IS LIKE ONE THAT I HAD… LOOKS LIKE [THE OFFICER] HAD DONE SOME MODIFICATIONS TO THAT, WHICH MAKES TOTAL SENSE, WHERE THEY’VE GOT THE GLUE [AND VELCRO] ON THERE… TO MAKE IT MORE RETENTIVE, SO IT STICKS TO YOU [AND] DOESN’T MOVE AROUND… THE DEXTERITY THAT YOU [NEED], EVEN WITH GLOVES ON, THIS WOULD BE A PRETTY DIFFICULT THING TO TRY TO GET [A WEAPON] OUT OF. YOU [HAVE TO] UNDO THE FLAP, AND THEN YOU GRAB YOUR PISTOL. THE NEW HOLSTERS, YOU JUST [HIT THE SIDE]. THERE’S A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES TO GET THE PISTOL OUT A LITTLE BIT QUICKER, AND IF YOU HAVE GLOVES ON, IT’S WAY EASIER… BUT GENERALLY ALL PISTOLS ARE SECONDARY WEAPONS IN TACTICAL OPERATIONS.” FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT SGT. CARSCADDEN’S SERVICE WITH THE LRPS TACTICAL UNIT, SEE RECORD P20100050001. SEE PERMANENT FILE P20100050001-GA FOR FULL CARSCADDEN INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT.

THIS SHIRT WAS WORN BY SERGEANT GEORGE CARSCADDEN AS PART OF HIS DAILY SERVICE UNIFORM DURING HIS CAREER WITH THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE FORCE. CARSCADDEN JOINED THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE IN 1997, AFTER WORKING WITH THE PEEL REGIONAL POLICE SERVICES IN THE GREATER TORONTO AREA FROM 1988 TO 1997. DURING HIS CAREER IN PEEL, CARSCADDEN RECEIVED SPECIAL TRAINING, INCLUDING COMPLETING THE FBI’S OBSERVER/SNIPER COURSE, WHICH INFORMED HIS APPLICATION AND ACCEPTANCE TO THE TACTICAL UNIT IN LETHBRIDGE. REGARDING THIS SHIRT, CARSCADDEN SAID: “THAT [IS FROM] THE PATROL WORLD… THEY HAD JUST SWITCHED A COUPLE OF MONTHS PRIOR [TO HIS JOINING THE FORCE], FROM THE LIGHT BLUE [SHIRTS] TO THE DARK BLUE… THE SHIRTS AVERAGED 2-3 YEARS [OF WEAR].” THIS SHIRT HAS THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SHOULDER PATCH THAT WAS INTRODUCED IN DECEMBER 2004 TO REFLECT THE FORCE’S REGIONALIZATION TO INCLUDE COALDALE, AND IN 2015 CARSCADDEN SAID HE HAD BEEN WEARING IT JUST PRIOR TO STARTING THE DONATION PROCESS IN 2010. ON JULY 28, 2015 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED SGT. CARSCADDEN ABOUT HIS SERVICE WITH THE LRPS. CARSCADDEN SAID: ““[I STARTED OUT] IN PATROLS… I WAS VERY INTERESTED IN SOME OF THE THINGS THEY HAD IN THE TACTICAL WORLD, SO I APPLIED, AND WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET ON THEIR PART-TIME TACTICAL TEAM WITHIN LETHBRIDGE [FROM 1999 – 2012]… I WAS [ALSO] ASKED IF I COULD GO INTO THE COMMUNITY LIAISON UNIT, AND WHEN I WAS IN THAT UNIT WE HAD A NEW POLICE CHIEF [CHIEF MIDDLETON-HOPE] WHO HAD AN INTEREST IN EXPANDING SOME OF THE ROLES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY RESOURCE UNIT [SO WE FORMED] A DIVERSITY UNIT [IN 2003]… THAT HAD A HAND IN DEVELOPING [RELATIONSHIPS WITH] DIFFERENT ETHNIC GROUPS IN YOUR COMMUNITY, AND HOW YOU CAN APPROACH THEM SO THEY CAN ASSIST YOU, AND VICE-VERSA FOR THEM IF THERE’S A NEED FOR HELP WITHIN THE COMMUNITY. SO I’M VERY PROUD OF THAT, AND THERE’S A COUPLE OF THINGS I WAS INVOLVED WITH IN THAT UNIT THAT WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCES. [WE HOLD] A TEEPEE SERVICE, AND I AM THE OFFICIAL TEEPEE KEEPER, AND VERY HONOURED WITH THE DIFFERENT RESPONSIBILITIES THAT WERE HANDED OVER TO ME BY THE ELDERS WITHIN THIS AREA. SO IT’S REALLY AMAZING DOING THE JOB – REALLY IMPACTFUL, NOT ONLY FOR YOURSELF BUT THE COMMUNITY… THEN AFTER THE DIVERSITY UNIT AND BACK OUT ONTO PATROLS [IN 2006] AND THEN I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET PROMOTED… THEY PUT ME INTO THE TRAINING UNIT AGAIN, BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE EXPERIENCES THAT I HAD… THEN, JUST RECENTLY, I’M BACK ON PATROLS AS PATROL SUPERVISOR, WHICH IS FANTASTIC.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT.

History
THIS JACKET WAS OWNED BY CHIEF OF POLICE (2006 TO PRESENT, 2011), TOM MCKENZIE OF THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICE (LRPS). ACCORDING TO INSPECTOR BILL KAYE, THIS TYPE OF COAT CAME INTO USE AROUND THE MID TO LATE 1990S. PRIOR TO THAT THEY WERE USING A NYLON PEA COAT. THIS TYPE OF COAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MORE VERSATILE SO IT COULD BE USED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. THE LIGHTER LAYERS COULD BE WORN DURING THE SPRING WHILE THE LAYERS COULD BE COMBINED TO MAKE A WARM COAT IN THE WINTER. THEY ARE STILL USING A SIMILAR TYPE OF COAT BUT IT IS MADE BY A DIFFERENT COMPANY WITH NEWER MATERIALS. TOM MCKENZIE BEGAN WORKING WITH THE LRPS IN 1976 AND WORKED HIS WAY UP THROUGH THE RANKS TO BECOME CHIEF OF POLICE IN 2006. HE SAID, "STARTING OUT AS A CONSTABLE YOU'RE FOCUSED ON GETTING OUT ON THE STREET AND WORKING AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY. AS YOU PROGRESS IN THAT YOU TAKE ON NEW CHALLENGES. THIS IS A TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO TAKE ON ANOTHER CHALLENGE... TO GIVE BACK AGAIN TO A COMMUNITY AND TO A SERVICE THAT HAS TREATED ME VERY WELL THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE CAREER.
