To everyone involved

Thank you!

We truly could not have done it without your help. Thank you for reinforcing the support that our community has for the Calgary Police Service.

  1. Write a message of appreciation

    Maybe you had an interaction with a Calgary Police Service member that you would like to thank them for, or maybe you’d just like to show your support? Regardless, we need your help to let the members of the Calgary Police Service know what they mean to Calgarians. It is our hope that these messages – long or short – uplift all CPS members and provide hope in times of darkness.

  2. Join us

    All Calgarians are encouraged to join us on Saturday, May 13, 2023, to celebrate, honour and recognize our Calgary Police Service members.

  3. Show Your Blue

    As a visible show of support, all citizens are invited to display blue lights outside of their homes or wear blue clothing, throughout Saturday, May 13, 2023. While a small gesture in itself, these noticeable signs of support are beyond meaningful to Calgary Police Service members.

  4. Donate

    Calgary Police Youth Foundation and the YouthLink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre

    This year, Beacons of Hope will be supporting two incredible charities and organizations in our community that are lifting up the next generation of Calgarians every single day.

    We are partnering with the Calgary Police Youth Foundation and the YouthLink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre to continue their mission of inspiring the next generation of Calgarians to be safe, to live securely, to be smart and to be successful.

I have always been a supporter of law and order and feel fortunate that I was able to raise my children in Calgary, a city that espoused law and order and because of a proud police force was able to deliver it. As Calgary evolves and, because of changes to our major industry, reinvents itself, we must assure that those institutions and things that made us great in the first place remain intact and are celebrated. The Calgary Police Service is such an institution.

In a time where negativity dominates headlines, I’m challenging Calgarians to choose positivity. I want to inspire hope where it is needed most, and deserved most, and right now, it is needed in our CPS community. It is our mission that The Beacons of Hope inspires Calgarians to reflect, engage, and acknowledge the sacrifice that our CPS members make to keep us safe, every day. Let’s inspire change with positivity, and let’s start with a well earned “thank you”!
