Ask a cop a question

What is a community policing officer’s role? How does an officer know what to do in emergency situations? Where do police dogs go when they’re done their day shift? Following a successful launch in rural communities, Ask a Cop a Question is back for youth in more communities to participate!

While all residents are welcomed to ask a question, grade 7 and 8 students have a chance at becoming their school’s community influencer. Keep reading to learn more about this engagement. Don’t forget to provide your questions by Sunday, Feb. 26, 2023. Ask your question(s) here!

Ask Wood Buffalo RCMP Your Questions

All residents are invited to submit their questions by clicking here. All questions will be reviewed and vetted by local RCMP to confirm panel discussions are age-appropriate conversations. The deadline to submit questions is Feb. 26, 2023.

Choose a Community Influencer

Students in grades seven and eight are encouraged to ask their questions for a chance at becoming their school’s influencer! An influencer is someone who encourages their peers, teachers, and family members to also ask questions. This individual will be chosen by RCMP based on participation and will co-host the panel discussion at their school.

Host a Virtual Panel Discussion with Wood Buffalo RCMP

Once a school influencer is chosen, Wood Buffalo RCMP and the school influencer will co-host a recorded conversation at the school with their peers in attendance. The influencer will ask officers questions that had been submitted and hear answers directly from officers.

Following the panel discussion, pizza will be ordered for the school influencer to share with their class.

Residents from all rural communities we're invited to ask questions that matter to them during Spring 2022. The questions collected throughout engagement were answered through a community virtual panel discussion. We're excited to share the recorded sessions from participating rural communities:

  • Anzac Recorded Panel Discussion
  • Conklin Recorded Panel Discussion
  • Janvier Recorded Panel Discussion
