One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Someone decided to give these guys guns as well. Probably to remain safe from all the P'd off residents losing their marbles over them sitting in the honey holes around town handing out tickets.

As for Sheriffs, I played rugby with a guy who was a Sheriff and he said they had a lot to do with checkstops. Not sure how or why.
So far as I know, sheriffs basically have two jobs: highway patrol - basically the rural equivalent of a bylaw officer inside a city like Okotoks or Airdrie. And bailiff duty. They handle security and transport at courts buildings.

Also security for government buildings.

How about the First Nations police? I see them driving around town from time to time.
I've been pulled over by Fish and Wildlife (within park limits).

I would assume tribal police also have the same authority as any other police force. Not sure they have jurisdiction outside a reserve however?

I believe and someone can confirm but if you don't pay your railway ticket you can't renew your registration.

Are you insinuating that they're more severe than the Blimp Police?

My parents live in Okotoks.

A county mounty will sit and watch this stop sign and hands out tickets for anyone that doesn't stop for a full 3 seconds.

There's also a road near their house that's just surrounded by fields, built for traffic to go 80, but in recent years it's now just barely within the town limits so the speed limit got decreased to 60 for no reason and they patrol it nonstop
HAH! They're in Air Ranch. I drive it daily.

That 60K zone is a result of the line of houses worried someone is going to go flying off the road and smash their houses. I know the mom who spearheaded it. I got nailed doing 80 in a 60 taking my kids to Lacrosse....

Air Ranch is also 30k through the entire neighbourhood. I've been pulled over doing 35, and waved at by bylaw for doing 30-34 (not sure how fast I was going, my speedo goes in intervals of 2, so it was either 31, 32, 33 or 34 when I glanced down).

My neighbours house got broken into last summer.....it took 4 hours to get a car out there. In the meantime they watched the burglar on security cams ransack the place while they were in Arizona.

Now I don’t live in Calgary, but the rail cops here love giving out tickets, but they are horrible at backing them up, so when someone does fight it they usually don’t even show up. Then it gets tossed. I’m in lloydminster so ymmv but I’d try and fight it

I was looking for a clip from a movie or show where the lead rides a rail car and gets his ass kicked by the plain clothed ‘rail police’. Now it’s driving me crazy because I can’t think of what I saw that in...

I mostly just wanted to put that aweful movie back in everyone's head.

Lots of bond movies have scenes like that, but maybe it was Octopussy?





And I mostly just want an excuse to post Octopussy.

The Sherriffs love patrolling the stupid 80 zone on the #1 by Chestermere. They're got someone pulled over nearly every time I go by there.

That's a reasonable 80 zone. The 281 is the best road to get to southern Chestermere, as well as the k-9 school, and the 791 goes to the high school. A teenager got killed there a few years ago crossing those lanes as a young driver.

I'm glad that short stretch is 80, and that they patrol it. School buses pull out on the highway at both those roads. That there is a legit speed trap.

But they sure do like to patrol around here. I'm a bit further north of Chestermere, and they like to hang out / cruise on Conrich Road, 100th st, McKnight (the 250) and the TC. And at all the entrances/exits for Chestermere.

Anyone else? Those security guys that drive fake cop cars? EMS guys with lights on their Suburban? The fire guys that drive Escapes? Calgary Bylaw officers?

How about the First Nations police? I see them driving around town from time to time.

Don't forget those pesky CN Rail Cops!

I have worked in the Ogden area for almost a decade and deal with the Ogden Dale Road and Rail crossing daily.

That road is policed a lot. Yet I have seen more drivers do stupid stuff in that area than any other area of the city.

I am certain many people in the city have no fear of the CPR police so they drive like morons. Like others have learned today the CPR police do have the same powers as the Calgary police service.

They are super strict in their playground so be careful.

A side note to this is at the end/beginning of Ogden Dale Road is also a sheriffs station.

Good luck fighting the ticket Mass_nerder. Have you ever had the traffic court experience?

Correct on all counts! Worried about cars coming off the road doing 80, yet they literally live underneath a flight school. Peace officers and bylaw LOVE that area, between that stretch of township road with the artificially low speed limit, 30-40k everywhere else, the new traffic circle where nobody yields, and the 3 way stop to nowhere. It's crazy the amount of enforcement it's gotten.

Needless to say they're looking at moving now, it's just gotten too busy with all the new developments and with drake Landing getting big. The reason they moved there in the first place was because it was quiet. Now it's a ####show

I have not. In my 18 years if driving, I've never even been pulled over.

On the back of a CPS ticket there are instructions on how to pay, court date, etc. Is a CP ticket the same? What is the process for going to court for a CP ticket?

The obvious deterrent for a regular ticket is that eventually you can go to jail. Assuming that would happen if you blow it off, and next time a cop runs your plates they see the history and arrest you. I assume CP cops can't do that? Or is the CP ticket system connected to the vehicle registration system?
