2017 June - Police Culture: The Old Boys Club and the Role of Police Governance in Shaping a Healthier Service
Date: June 22, 2017
Presenter: Lesley Bikos
This session will explore the culture of policing and how it impacts officers' lives both on and off-duty and will include topics such as diversity, mental health, and police operations and oversight. Building on these ideas, we will explore the hypothesis of how this impact extends to public service. Relevant academic literature and the personal experiences police officers report in the presenter's ongoing nation-wide study will be used as a starting point to discuss potential solutions to the issues facing policing in Canada today.
