Administrative history

Administrative History:;Dates of Founding and/or Dissolution: The Law Enforcement Appeal Board was established in 1973. Functional Responsibility: The Law Enforcement Appeal Board is an independent, quasi-judicial, provincial board established under The Police Act, 1973 (S.A. Chapter 44, 1973). The Board and each member of the Board have all the powers of a commissioner appointed under The Public Inquiries Act (R.S.A. Chapter P-29, 1980). The Board's primary function is to hold inquiries into policing, police officers conduct and police officers' appeals on disciplinary action. Predecessor and Successor Bodies: The Alberta Police Commission performed the function of inquiry previous to the Law Enforcement Appeal Board. The Alberta Police Commission was established with the proclamation of The Police Act 1971 (S.A. Chapter 85, 1971). This was a provincial body and was disbanded when The Police Act, 1973 (S.A. Chapter 44, 1973) repealed the legislation that created the Alberta Police Commission. Administrative Relationships: Inquiries are held at the request of the Minister of Justice, a private investigator, security guard or special constable. The Lieutenant Governor in Council appoints the Board and prescribes remuneration for the Board. The Lieutenant Governor in Council designates one member of the Board, who is a member of the judiciary, as chairman. Administrative Structure: The Board has no fewer than three members. A member of the board is appointed for a three-year term and is eligible for reappointment. A quorum consists of two members of the Board. Names of Chief Officers: S.V. Legg, 1973-1987; P.J. Knoll, Q.C., 1992-1999.
