CONFERENCE FORMAT CHANGE
We’re Going Virtual!
Due to social distancing and large group gathering restrictions, CI’s Indigenous Policing Forum has changed format from a live, in-person event to an interactive, virtual conference.
The conference will follow a similar schedule and agenda as originally planned.
The new decade brings new beginnings for Indigenous Policing
Taking place on June 8th, this one-day interactive event brings together a diverse group of police professionals working in First Nation police services, diversity units, police boards and communities, as well as federal and provincial government department, for an in-depth solution-driven discussion.
Join us this June to hear critical insights and updates that are affecting the Indigenous Police and Police Serving Indigenous Communities. Still, day-to-day police work continues to be hindered by the internal struggle for resources, training and the public struggle against the criminal element. With an opportunity that will likely cause a ripple effect in police policy across the country, the incoming Comprehensive Police Services Act (COPS) offers an opt-in option for the First Nations Police Service.
