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).

The critical importance of effective communication in coordinating a multi-agency major incident responseSpeaker: Chris Ullah
We’ve become all too familiar in recent years with events that can suddenly overtake our normal lives. Critical Event Management can relate to a wide variety of scenarios – from a chemical spillage to a terrorist attack. During those crucial first moments of a crisis, clear efficient communications across all responders are essential. Indeed, it can mean the difference between life and death.
Join Chris Ullah, a recently retired Police Superintendent from the UK who will share with you his knowledge and experience of dealing with such incidents and how organisations are successfully increasing their resilience and averting crises. Ullah is BlackBerry’s CEM Evangelist who works globally with the emergency services, public sector bodies and private organisations to replace or enhance their communications solutions by introducing BlackBerry’s CEM solution, AtHoc. His main focus has been to ensure organisations form part of a critical communications network. Not only is BlackBerry AtHoc used at times of crisis, but Ullah has ensured that organisations utilise the solution on a daily basis so that it becomes part of their business as usual – realising huge efficiency gains.
