3rd Annual Indigenous Policing Forum
It is my pleasure to invite you to Attend the 3rd Annual Indigenous Policing Forum to discuss the unique policing challenges for Indigenous officers and communities, in Toronto, Friday, May 3, 2019. This event comes as greater scrutiny is being placed on how First Nations communities and people are being policed. The Federal Government has earmarked up to $291.2 million to be spent over five years to improve policing in First Nation and Inuit communities. Money is earmarked to support officer safety, policing equipment and salaries, as well as hiring up to 110 additional officer positions. Join us this year as we address:
•Funding for Indigenous Police and Emergency Services
•Recommendations and Responsibilities Following the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry
• Lessons Learned from the Thunder Bay Police Services Board
• In Charge During a Crisis Situations
•Building Relationships Across Jurisdictions and Departments
•The Hardest Lessons and the Easiest Mistakes — Tips for the Next Generation of Police Officers
This year’s forum comes on the heals of recommendations from the MMWGI and we are fortunate to have all four commissioners joining us to discuss practical and forward-thinking recommendations for police services and their partners. I look forward to seeing you in May.
