Weed Out The Risk Program

May 22, 2020

Weed Out the Risk: An-Anti Crash Course for Canadian Youth Weed Out the Risk (WOTR) is an interactive harm reduction program that aims to educate youth on the risks associated with using cannabis and driving or being a passenger in a high driver’s vehicle. The single-session challenges youth misconceptions about impaired driving using a variety of games, videos, and case studies to engage youth participants. WOTR is available in both French and English and has been endorsed by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, MADD Canada, the Cannabis Council of Canada, teachers and most importantly by the tens of thousands of youth participants who are now making more informed decisions. Our facilitator training allows you to bring the Weed Out the Risk program to your community. This training is a cost-effective and valuable professional development opportunity. Trainings can be completed in just a few hours either in-person or online. Upon completion of the training, participants receive full access to the program and its supplementary materials such as the Facilitator’s Manual and an Educator’s Guide.…

Modernizing Police Leadership Competencies Project Report

May 14, 2020

In the fall of 2019, CPKN began work on a project to update senior policing leadership competencies found in the Competency-Based Management Framework (CBMF) with project partners, Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and Canadian Police College (CPC). This project is partially funded by Public Safety Canada with additional contributions from the project partners.  The project team engaged the services of the Community Safety Knowledge Alliance (CSKA) to undertake research and develop a project report. The final report has been complete and is available to download. The Modernizing Police Leadership Competencies project has proven to be a valuable initiative to the benefit of Canadian Policing. As you will see in the report, there were three significant outcomes: Creation of an updated Competency Profile for Police Executive Leadership (Appendix A of the report).

The Network

January 27, 2020

CPKN acknowledged it’s 15 year anniversary at Stanhope 2019 with Sandy Sweet presenting a brief history of CPKN’s origins and the big network of organizations and individuals who have been a part of its growth and development. In 2001, a report called Strategic Human Resources Analysis of Public Policing in Canada was released. The report recommended the development of standards for all jobs in policing (competencies), national collaboration in delivery of common training, and the development of internet-based learning resources for police across Canada. Two things were happening in tandem at this time: John Arnold had an organization called PoliceLearn.com (PLC) with a network or organizations collaborating to develop online training, and Holland College had received federal funding to develop the Justice Knowledge Network to develop and deliver eLearning to Canadian Police. The Justice Knowledge Network and PoliceLearn.com joined forces and from this collaboration, in 2004 CPKN was born with the first President named to CPKN being John Arnold.
