The Québec City Police Department is delighted to welcome the 110th Annual Conference of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), August 16 to 19, 2015.
Canadian and international news in recent months has seemed to echo, sometimes tragically, the theme of this year’s conference: Radicalization: Prevent, Act, Restore. Ideas are becoming more polarized and individuals and small groups may abandon social and political debate and take refuge in aggressive dissidence. What is the role of the police in such a situation? High-profile speakers and exciting workshops will help you get a clearer grasp of this troubling phenomenon, see that it is not limited to major centres, and better understand the framework, methods, and people we need to work with in dealing with one of the 21st century’s greatest threats.
And as you’re being enriched professionally, you’ll also have an opportunity to explore a city known world-wide for its charms and attractions. In Québec City European flair meets North American energy, creativity serves culture and understanding, and history comes to life beneath the ramparts and church towers.
