There's a new bronze statue in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Today (July 27), the statue was revealed as a permanent art installation at the protective services building that house the RCMP and municipal enforcement.
 
The statue features a male RCMP officer and a female peace officer, symbolizing their cooperation and dedication to the public's safety.
 
"I love it actually, I think it's really good. It came out really well with the concept that was first designed," said Sergeant Ed Barden of municipal enforcement.
 
The detail and the human expression that are incorporated into the piece tell a larger than life story about the kind of people who dedicate their service to community safety.
 
Nathan Scott is the artist the City of Fort Saskatchewan chose to design and create the statue. Scott has completed public art projects for Toronto, Charlottetown, San Francisco, Seattle, Ottawa, and Calgary.
 
The statue had a price tag of $117,750. That total was part of the cost of the law enforcement building (one per cent of the structure's budget was set aside for public art).
