Municipal Enforcement Car 1A Foothills MD Municipal Enforcement vehicle

The Foothills MD came in for praise Wednesday for the steps it's taken since the killing of Peace Officer Rod Lazenby to improve the safety of its bylaw members.

However the changes, such as sending two officers for enforcement issues and better equipment and communications, have not been made mandatory province-wide.

A Fatality Inquiry into the August 2012 killing of Lazenby has wrapped up in Calgary.

Lazenby was a retired RCMP officer who worked in Bylaw Enforcement for the Municipal District.

He was killed when he went to a rural property to deal with a dog complaint.

The judge will take recommendations made at the inquiry and write a report on them, which could take up to a year.
