The National Advisory Committee has members from public safety organizations across Canada that provide expertise, guidance and advice on issues ranging from course topic selection to the planning of the annual Stanhope Conference.

NAC Sub-Committees

CPKN's NAC has sub-committees to explore current issues impacting police learning and education. Currently, we have the following sub-committees:

Collaboration & National Police Training Inventory

This sub-committee promotes sharing and collaboration of course materials and expertise working toward a goal of national standardization and quality learning keeping in mind regional, provincial, and national influences. The Collaboration Committee developed and maintains the National Police Training Inventory (NPTI),  a registry of Canadian police training resources, including classroom, blended, and online learning.

Course Topic Selection

We want to offer the best technology enhanced learning to the public safety community. This group helps us achieve this goal by reviewing and prioritizing topics and course development to the NAC based on feedback from the community and their experience.

Do you have an idea for us to consider? Submit a topic selection form.

New Technologies

This sub-committee explores current and emerging advanced learning technologies for public safety in the US and Canada.

Join Us!

If you are a member of a Canadian public safety organization with time, energy and ideas to contribute, please get in touch! Joining one of our sub-committees is an excellent way to participate in a national group that is committed to the best quality technology-enhanced learning for public safety and Canadian police.
