History
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.

WORN WITH THE CARGO PANTS P19960112106-GA. PART OF WORK UNIFORM USED BY K-9 UNIT OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES. HISTORY OF K-9 UNIT: BEFORE 1979 THERE WAS NO CANINE UNIT IN THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICE BECAUSE DOGS WERE NOT YET RECOGNIZED AS THE IMPORTANT AND USEFUL TOOLS THAT THEY ARE TODAY. IN 1979, THIS CHANGED WHEN DAVE HASTIE TRAINED THE DOG Q-MAX IN CASCADE COUNTY, MONTANA. THIS COMMENCED THE TRAINING OF DOGS FOR SERVICE IN THE POLICE UNIT, AND WITHIN FOUR YEARS THERE WERE FOUR DOGS ON THE FORCE; QUANTO IN 1980, TRAINED BY JOHN RAFTE; SORKO IN 1981, TRAINED BY BILL KAYE; AND ZEUS IN 1983 TRAINED BY GERRY HERASEMLEK. THE CANINES THAT SERVE IN THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICE ARE TRAINED IN A NUMBER OF AREAS, INCLUDING TRACKING, SEARCHING FOR EVIDENCE, AGILITY, CRIMINAL APPREHENSION, AND OBEDIENCE. THE DOGS ALSO COMPETE IN CANINE COMPETITIONS THAT ARE HELD IN BOTH LETHBRIDGE AND MONTANA, WITH THE COMPETITORS COMING FROM ALL OVER CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES. TOGETHER THE DOGS AND OTHER OFFICERS COMPETE IN TRIALS SIMILAR TO THE DUTIES THEY PERFORM IN EVERYDAY SERVICE. THE LETHBRIDGE CANINE UNIT FREQUENTLY PLACES IN THE TOP RANKS AT THESE DOG TRIALS. IN 1986 THE LETHBRIDGE CANINES AND HANDLERS WERE THE CANADIAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. SINCE THEN, THE UNIT HAS EXPERIENCED CONTINUED SUCCESS. TRAINING OF THE DOGS USED IN POLICE SERVICE IS DONE LOCALLY ON THE TRAINING GROUNDS LOCATED SOUTH OF LETHBRIDGE. THE DOGS BEGIN THEIR TRAINING WHEN THEY ARE ONE YEAR OLD, AND THIER FIRST SESSION IS FOURTEEN WEEKS IN DURATION. DOGS IN POLICE SERVICE WORK EXCLUSIVELY WITH ONE OFFICER, WITH WHOM THEY ALSO LIVE. GERMAN SHEPHERDS ARE THE DOG OF CHOICE FOR THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICE AS THEY POSSESS THE BEST BALANCE OF TRAITS THAT ARE VALUED FOR THE JOB, INCLUDING INTELLIGENCE, BALANCE, AND AGILITY. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES.

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.
