CAPG Governance Summit 2018

A Police Governance Dashboard

8:30 – 4:30
Monday, November 5, 2018
Westin Bayshore, Vancouver, British Columbia

The Alignment Imperative

If a car is not aligned, we use excess gas, tire tread and physical energy to stay on the road. Likewise, Police Chief/Board alignment is critical for effective police governance. Learn ideas and tools to make sure you are using the roadmap (strategy) and the vehicle is running smoothly (processes).


Board Members and Police Chiefs often have tools to monitor policing services and strategies but often lack a simple means to continually assess their direct interface. Orientation, strategic and governance development efforts can be short lived unless there are regular check-ins. This very interactive session will develop a Check-in tool for continuous attention to the Police Chief/Board interface as well as alignment with City Councils and the public. The resulting Police Governance Dashboard will be accessible through the CAPG Learning Portal, an exclusive benefit for members.

Join your colleagues in a timely discussion to:

  • Confirm need for a Police Governance Dashboard – return on effort
  • Create successful Governance expectations – success indicators
  • Identify Board/Chief interface topics – ‘real time’ participant challenges
  • Discuss of preventive & remedial strategies – take home ideasResource Person

The most valuable resource in the room will be your peers. The session will be facilitated by Dr. Gordon McIntosh who has conducted 1,200 sessions on governance, strategy and leadership involving 130,000 elected and appointed leaders throughout

Canada and overseas. Gordon will be joined by Rebecca Coad, legal counsel with Lidstone & Company a law firm that focuses exclusively on local government – including police services.
