Canadian policing is recognized for service to the public through its adherence to best in class standards of evidence-based education of police recruits and professional development of officers.
National standards for training are adopted across Canada. The College's national officer certification criteria are universally adopted.
To achieve the creation of the Canadian College of Professional Policing through the education of community representatives, police practitioners, academics and government officials.
The Coalition for Canadian Police Reform is Canadian Registered Charity. Our goal is to educate Canadians about the need for professionalization of policing through national standards and a 21st Century curriculum.
There is overwhelming evidence of a need for transformation in how police officers in Canada are educated and trained. We bring together relevant stakeholders – citizens representing all parts of Canada and representing the diversity of our nation, police, researchers and politicians – to discuss what police officers need to know to effectively police in the 21st century. We believe that citizens reflecting the diversity of Canada should have a part to play in the police recruit curriculum.
We are NOT about defunding.
