For police forces, one of the big challenges today is doing more with less. And a big part of that is reducing the risk of legal liability, as well as mitigating the rapidly escalating cost, duration and number of disciplinary and other hearings. These costs are equally a strain on police associations whose duty it is to defend officers accused of wrongdoing.

The Canadian Institute’s 4th 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 the practical advice you need to implement it. Here are just a few topics included in this year’s agenda:

  • Civil litigation update, including class actions and the latest from the Supreme Court of Canada
  • How to deal with a multiplicity of proceedings arising from the same incident
  • Understanding what duties of privacy apply in the course of police work
  • A round table on today’s hot topics, including cameras on cars, the impact of PTSD, and investigative independence

and much more!

Speakers this year include Richard Rosenthal, Chief Civilian Director of B.C.’s Independent Investigations Office, The Hon. Wally Oppal, Q.C., as well as leading members of the police-law bar representing the full spectrum of clients.

PLUS take advantage of the informative pre-conference workshops on the Fundamentals of Administrative Law and The Officer on the Stand: Improving your Skills as an Effective Witness.
