HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 22, 2014) - Public Safety Canada
The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, spoke at the Canadian Association of Police Governance (CAPG) annual conference yesterday evening. The focus of his speech was the Economics of Policing.
For the last two years, Public Safety Canada, along with provincial and territorial governments, municipal representatives, police services and policing associations, academics and other stakeholders have been hard at work on the Economics of Policing - a collaborative initiative to ensure the long-term sustainability of Canada's high-quality policing services.
The national policing associations, including the CAPG, have been key partners in this initiative and in the development of the Shared Forward Agenda - a strategy for the future of policing in Canada, which was approved by Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers Responsible for Justice and Public Safety. This strategy, which was developed in consultation with numerous stakeholders and partners, is built around three pillars: efficiencies within police services, new models for community safety, and efficiencies within the justice system. It is about cooperating in those areas where it makes sense to do so, while respecting jurisdictional responsibilities.
"Along with their dedication to ensuring the safety and security of Canadians, the collective experience and knowledge of the national policing associations, including the Canadian Association of Police Governance, continue to be valuable in shaping and implementing the Economics of Policing initiative."
