2nd Annual Western Canadian Conference on

The Law of Policing

Essential Professional Development for All Sectors of Policing

Tuesday, November 29 to Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC

2011 has brought no end to the controversies surrounding policing and the law. With the creation of a new Independent Investigations Office in B.C., the Missing Women Inquiry due to start hearings this fall, publication of the final report of the Paul Inquiry, a $345,000 judgment against a municipal police force, new legislative amendments in Alberta, and leave granted to the SCC on an issue that could blow the complaints process out of the water, it’s more important than ever to keep abreast of unfolding events.

The Canadian Institute’s 2nd Annual Western Canadian Conference on The Law of Policing is designed to give you two days of up-to-date substantive law as well as practical advice on implementing it in your organization. Here are just a few topics included in this year’s agenda:

  • Effective risk management for police forces
  • Investigating police corruption, featuring an FBI case study that wowed the audience at our spring Toronto conference
  • An update on the domino effects from McNeil, including the challenges of finding roles for officers whose testimony may be impeached
  • Appropriate use of social media both in investigations and internally
  • Meeting the duty to accommodate in the police context
  • Top civil cases of the year, including negligent investigation, gross negligence, duty to warn and other causes of action

Speakers this year include Tom Stamatakis, Sheila Sullivan, Special Agent Robert Schwinger of the FBI as well as leading counsel representing plaintiffs, officers and police forces small and large.

PLUS, if you’re involved in police discipline, you won’t want to miss the post-program workshop on the Fundamentals of Administrative Law.
