Municipal Enforcement Services

Vermilion Municipal Enforcement is committed to serving and improving our community, through the use of the community-based policing model. The Town of Vermilion employs a sworn Community Peace Officer, appointed by the Alberta Solicitor General and Minister of Public Security as authorized under the Peace Officer Act.

The Community Peace Officer is responsible for the education, investigation and enforcement of certain provincial acts and municipal by-laws for the Town of Vermilion and the Village of Mannville. The Municipal Enforcement Peace Officer works with allied law enforcement and emergency response agencies to ensure the needs of the community are met on all levels. Municipal Enforcement is recognized as supplemental to, and not a replacement for, the RCMP.

The Municipal Enforcement Peace Officer engages in a diverse set of duties including but not limited to:
