Our Next Session
Strengthening your governance capacity through policy development
with with with Fred Kaustinen, Executive Director, Ontario Association of Police Services Boards (OAPSB)
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 | 12:00pm Eastern
The key premise behind municipal policing is that communities “consent” to be policed. Police boards exist to ensure that policing in their community reflects its needs, values and expectations.
Policies are the primary means by which boards speak to and strategically direct their police service; they are the link between community needs, values and expectations and police operations. The quality of those policies directly impacts the police services ability to fulfill those needs, values and expectations.
By developing highly relevant, quality policies, a board strengthens its governance capacity, as well as its relevance to the community.
- Learn the advantages of speaking through policies
- Review the policy development process
- See what a good policy contains, and doesn’t contain – and why
- Practise creating a policy for policing operations
- See how policy links to performance evaluation
Who Should Attend
- Members of Police Governance Agencies
- Policy Analysts
- Policing Researchers
