A long-time constable with the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) was unhappy with many unsuccessful attempts to be transferred to a part-time position and she eventually grieved her treatment.

Const. Jody Coughlan had been with the EPS since 2001, when in December 2013, her daughter was diagnosed with cancer. 

She was given a medical leave of absence to deal with it and Coughlan’s own medical issues.
