These are very turbulent times for police forces, police associations and their advisors. Governing legislation is being amended in several provinces, and police discipline at the RCMP is under scrutiny. The Supreme Court of Canada has mandated disclosure of police disciplinary records to accused persons. The Braidwood Inquiry continues to make front-page news as it investigates the use of tasers at Vancouver Airport and elsewhere. And police forces are increasingly the target of civil litigation both by members of the public and their own employees, even where officers are represented by an association.

The Canadian Institute’s all-new 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. To name just a few sessions:

Gerry McNeilly, Ontario’s new Independent Police Review Director, will report on his office’s first six months of operation

Ontario SIU director Ian Scott and lawyer Joseph Markson will face off on hot topics at the SIU, including counsel involvement in the preparation of police notes

You’ll enjoy stimulating panels on implementing the controversial McNeil case, adjudication, internal investigations, use of force and other pressing topics

Brian Gover will bring you up to date on important recent cases and issues

And much more!
