The Network Webinar Series


About the Series

On behalf of the CPKN Board of Directors and National Advisory Committee, CPKN is pleased to present The Network Webinar Series to help deliver our vision to drive excellence in policing professional development.

2020 has thrown lots of unexpected curve balls from providing public safety through a pandemic to mass protests, calls to defund the police, and an increased spotlight on police and community interactions. Each of these challenges has impacts on policing professional development and in these challenges are opportunities to innovate and change.

In The Network Webinar Series, our goal is present a platform for policing professionals and visionary thinkers to discuss priority topics through the lens of  professional development. Through open dialogue and idea sharing, we can collectively move towards excellence in professional development for all Canadian police.

Join us on October 8, 2020 CPKN hosted The Violence Link & Recognizing Human Violence as a part of The Network Webinar Series with a presentation from Sgt. Teena Stoddard, Ottawa Police Service to discuss:

  • The definition of Violence Link 
  • How does the Violence Link apply to police officers' investigations
  • How to apply the Violence Link in police call for service
  • How to rule out human violence or acquire the grounds for charges
  • How the violence link is connected with dangerous offender applications

The session was facilitated by Leslie Hadfield from the Atlantic Police Academy. The session also featured presentations from Mark Randall from Hidden Insight and Dr. Rebecca Ledger from Pet Welfare.
