Thank you to those who were able to attend this year’s conference, hosted by the Ottawa Police Services Board!


Presenters offered thought-provoking presentations, lively panel discussions, and thoughtful workshops centered around the theme of Reimagining Community Safety. Bravo to the Conference Committee, Chaired by Carole McDougall, for arranging a program that was so robust and engaging.  

The number of members who offered their financial support in the form of sponsorship this year was incredible. Sharing knowledge is one of the fundamental objectives of the CAPG, and we are grateful for our generous donors for enabling us to hold this event.
