EDMONTON, Alberta — City police are using training recruits to meet their own goal of putting two officers in patrol cars - a move the cop union is criticizing.
"It was always the understanding that a recruit wasn't considered to be in a two-man car until he had completed his training," said the head of the Edmonton Police Association, Staff Sgt. Peter Ratcliff.
