    The women and men – both sworn and civilian – who deliver #frontlinepolice service have been particularly special to him throughout his career and his priority is to serve and protect not only the community, but also those who commit themselves to serving and protecting the community.

    Neufeld joined the #CalgaryPoliceService in 2019 after serving as the Chief of the #CamrosePolice Service, a smaller community that gave him the opportunity to build strong partnerships with staff and residents to improve quality of life in the city.

He has also completed the CACP Executive Global Studies program, where he studied international approaches to cybercrime, and the International Executive Development in Policing program from the Canadian Police College and Hong Kong Police College.

    Upon completion, he was invited to join the faculty of this program where he led a syndicate of senior police leaders from both Canada and Hong Kong through the program. In 1992, Neufeld’s police career began with the #VancouverPoliceDepartment. The illness of a parent brought him to the #EdmontonPoliceService the following year.

    He spent 12 years as a frontline patrol officer, including in Edmonton’s diverse inner-city where he worked with residents and community partners to address neighbourhood crime, disorder, and social issues.

    He also has experience in undercover operations, incident command, crisis negotiation, and as a member of the EPS Public Order Unit working on the G-8 and G-20 summits, Stanley Cup and Grey Cup deployments, as well as the 2006 riot.
