The economics of the post-COVID era: Future shock for police services and other public service organizations?Police services, other first responders and public service organizations will not be immune from consequences of the immediate economic outlook for the Province of Ontario and Canada. Pressures on the public sector are bound to increase as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. Is a financial reckoning on the horizon? Are police leaders and their organizations ready?
|11:00am - 11:45am||
Recruit to leadPolice organizations are increasingly competing with other sectors for new recruits to deliver policing services that meet the changing needs of their communities. Moreover, services must retain their people to ensure they are positioned to succeed. Hear an outstanding leaders panel discuss the marketing of policing: the Constable Selection System, recruitment, hiring and retention of police members, and the need for a broad strategy for promoting policing as a career option and profession.
|1:00pm - 1:45pm||
Mental Health for First Responders = PTSD. We are missing so much of the story, so much of the impact, and so much opportunity to engage and, potentially, divert mental health towards wellness instead of towards despair. Not having mental health literacy means that we are constantly questioning, swayed by, and implementing programs and tools that may not work. This talk aims to improve your critical thinking on topics of mental health while challenging some of your beliefs. This is an engagement driven discussion.

“Think about tomorrow, today”: The undeniable importance of court considerations for law enforcement officersSpeaker: Brian Lass
Arguably, the less “exciting” part of the law enforcement profession lies on the other side of chasing/arresting/charging the “bad guy”. However, an officer must always realize (and appreciate) that Sec. 11(d) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states “all persons are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty according to law”. As such – and in many ways – an officer’s job is only just beginning at the time a respective charge is laid. The world of Court is an integral and mandatory component of any officer’s tenure.
In this session, Brian Lass will preface the undeniable importance of court considerations for law enforcement officers, including (but not limited to) myths about an officer’s role in court, items of evidentiary consideration during an investigation, creating a Prima Facie Case, the officer’s role vs. the prosecutor’s role, and the court process itself (including officer testimony).
