The world of law enforcement is increasingly interacting with the law in ways that go far beyond apprehending criminals. Lawsuits, class actions, arbitrations, discipline hearings, external review hearings and investigations, royal commissions, inquests, criminal charges against members, human rights cases, employment actions, privacy complaints: the list goes on. This ever-expanding array of costly and often lengthy legal proceedings is putting heavy demands on management and counsel for police, member associations.

The Canadian Institute’s Conference on The Law of Policing, now offered in Ontario for the first time since 2011, is designed to give you two days of up-to-date substantive law in this highly specialized area, as well as the practical advice you need to implement it. Here are just a few topics included in this year’s agenda:

  • Finding ways to make the hearing process less costly and protracted
  • Preventing and responding to workplace harassment
  • Balancing privacy requirements with effective policing and discipline
  • Recent issues at the SIU
  • An update on new initiatives at the OIPRD
  • What important legislative changes will mean to disciplinary procedures in the RCMP
  • Significant developments on civil liability of police at the SCC and other courts

and much more!

Speakers this year include Gerry McNeilly, Ian Scott, and leading counsel representing plaintiffs, officers and police forces small and large.

PLUS take advantage of the informative workshops on Conducting a Harassment Investigation and The Officer on the Stand.

Don’t miss this outstanding event.
