After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone CI’s Law of Policing Conference originally scheduled for May 5–6, 2020 in Toronto, in order to do our part to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff.

Our Indigenous Policing Forum will also be postponed originally scheduled for May 4, 2020.

We are currently working with our event partners and venue on securing new conference dates and will update this page very soon. Please check back shortly.

Two days of balanced and current discussions on the most pressing issues facing police services, police associations, police boards, peace officers, special constables and their counsel.

This must-attend event brings together Chiefs of Police, in-house counsel, and a wide-variety of government and civilian agencies to delve into new legislation and precedent-setting case law, to determine the highest of police standards. Join a distinguished and diverse faculty of speakers as they provide practical solutions and optimum tools for your organization.
