   Reinforcements are on the way in the form of new officers, tactics and training to help combat crime in Calgary fueled by an abundance of meth on the streets, says Calgary’s acting police chief.
   Incidents relating to methamphetamine use in Calgary have skyrocketed over the last five years, soaring by a staggering 536 per cent by the third quarter of 2018. As of the end of November, police had dealt with more than 412 incidents involving methamphetamine, more than one per day.
   But interim police Chief Steve Barlow said the increase in meth use is directly linked to dangerous crimes across the city, including reckless drivers of stolen vehicles, break-ins and thefts.
