The CAPG Conference is the leading event in the Police Governance sector. Now entering its 32nd year, the Annual CAPG Conference is held over a three day period during which delegates are encouraged to network, discuss, engage, and discover the rich community we continue to foster.

Reimagining Community Safety and Wellbeing: Inspiring Change


The events of the last year have left an indelible mark on municipalities across the nation. The pandemic has dramatically changed how communities function, and reform demands for policing have only gotten stronger, making it more important than ever that we seek out new modes of operation. 

In our capacity as change-makers, how can we draw from the lessons learned by other communities to address the complex challenges we face?

The 2021 CAPG Conference offers you a unique opportunity to collaborate with familiar voices of experience as well as with new and emerging thought leaders in the field of Policing and Police Governance. Stay prepared for the challenges ahead by learning the tools and skills you need to inspire meaningful change in your own community.
