A Look at Suicide by Cop in Officer-Involved Shootings
Speaker: Peter Collins, the Operational Forensic Psychiatrist with the Ontario Provincial Police’s Criminal Behaviour Analysis Unit.

By definition, “suicide by cop” (SBC) is a method of suicide that occurs when an individual engages in threatening behaviour, with the goal of being killed by law enforcement. Today, it has entered the language of mainstream society.

Peter Collins, who has been a member of the crisis/hostage negotiation team of the Toronto Police Service Emergency Task Force since 1992, will discuss SBC subjects and indicators, while referencing interesting case studies relevant to law enforcement today.

How to Prevent Burnout in Frontline Workers: Perform Optimally on Any Shift Schedule
Speaker: Andi Clark

Burnout in frontline workers is becoming a crisis, resulting in more sick days taken, cases left open longer, less calls answered, higher potential for injury on duty, officer shortage, lower station moral and more...

Immense measures have been taken to support frontline workers on the mental health side.

Andi will speak about shift work and other stress triggers frontline workers face on the job, giving action steps that commanding officers and frontline workers can implement right away without any additional cost to help prevent the following physical signs of burnout:
  • Insomnia, tired and wired, waking mid sleep
  • Exhaustion: mentally and physically
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Bursts of anger and mood swings
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Brain fog, poor concentration and poor memory
  • And the inability to cope with smaller stressors

Combating Human Trafficking, Organ Trafficking, Elder Abuse and Fentanyl: A Public/Private Sector Approach
Speaker: Det.-Sgt. Nunzio Tramontozzi and Michael Burgess

Det.-Sgt. Nunzio Tramontozzi and Michael Burgess, the senior manager of the Major Investigations and Demarkets Teams, BMO Financial Group, will speak on a growing trend in police/private sector partnerships relating to public safety issues facing Canadians. With the emergence of such high-profile crimes as human and organ trafficking, elder abuse and illicit fentanyl, drastic steps were taken to align law enforcement, the banking sector and financial regulators.

Tramontozzi and Burgess will highlight examples of police/bank/regulator partnerships that have made a lasting impact on the safety of Canadians. Through official information sharing channels, regulatory filings and intelligence sharing, concrete steps have been taken to address these issues from an intelligence-lead posture. With the growing demands placed on law enforcement, these partnerships are now more important than ever, as the criminal element becomes better equipped, transnational, more sophisticated and better resourced. Tramontozzi and Burgess will discuss information sharing and the state of leveraging data for public good within these frameworks.
