Policing in Turbulent Times

The coronavirus pandemic is changing the world. Recent events have made the focus on policing more intense. Indigenous communities face racism, and higher crime and incarceration rates than the rest of Canada.

In the middle of great conflict, there are enormous opportunities for growth and progress. In these crisis times, it is crucial for all those involved with the system to explore and identify key elements in developing and implementing quality policing strategies and harm reduction measures for Indigenous communities; ones that take into account both where we have come from and where we need to go.

Funding for police has always been an issue. How can we “spend smart” to keep communities safe?

Working together, with the right knowledge and tools, Indigenous communities and police can be part of a new way forward for building safe and healthy communities, a change that generates constructive active partnerships. To that end, we bring together leading experts with a wealth of knowledge and experience, making it essential learning for anyone interested in creating a better and safer future.
