Politics and Police Governance: Relationship challenges between the city and the board
with Dr Alok Mukherjee
January 24, 2017 | 12:00pm EST
Is the involvement of municipal politicians in the day to day civilian governance of local policing a blessing or a curse? Or is it perhaps a bit of both depending on the issue and the circumstances?
Police acts in all provinces that have civilian governance of local policing provide for formal representation of the city councils on the police boards or commissions. At a minimum, it is an acknowledgement of the fact that the municipality is the main funder of city policing and municipal politicians do have a significant interest in the quality and nature of the policing of their communities.
But besides the formal role provided for in provincial police acts, local politicians do not hesitate to take on informal roles in the name of their communities. They frequently express themselves vocally and seek to exert their influence through council motions, communications to the board or the police chief, or media statements. As a result, the relationship between police boards/commissions and city politicians is sometimes an uneasy one.
This webinar will explore some positive and negative examples of the relationship between the city and the police board/commission to identify:
- the characteristics of a relationship that serves the public interest;
- the factors that cause tension or conflict between the citizen members and the city council’s elected representatives; and,
- the provisions or requirements in the police and municipal acts that could contribute to a mutually beneficial relationship between city hall and the board/commission – one that serves and protects the public interest.
Who Should Attend
- Members of Police Governance Agencies
- Police Executives
- Members of Police Agencies
- Police Researchers
