Executive Director of Alberta's Serious Incident Response Team calls for more cilivian involvement

Clifton Purvis, the ED of Alberta's Serious Incident Response Team, the unit that investigates serious instances of police misconduct, has called for more civilian involvement of investigations. As he put it, "my personal vision would see a much greater balance so that we'd have about a 50-50 split between civilian officers and sworn police officers." The current team is composed of 12 investigators --- four civilian and eight officers from the RCMP and Edmonton and Calgary Police Services.
