76 CACP 2017 Annual Review RESOLUTIONS PASSED AT THE 112 TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE JULY, 2017 • MONTREAL, QUEBEC Resolution #01 - 2017 RESOLUTION FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE CANADIAN COMMUNITY SAFETY INFORMATION MANAGE- MENT STRATEGY (CCSIMS) Submitted by the Information and Communications Technology Committee WHEREAS the CACP Human Resources and Learning Committee has recognized the immense value of the competency-based management framework, and; WHEREAS the safety, security and prosperity of Canadians including law enforcement officers and their partners are reliant on the effective sharing of timely information, and; WHEREAS numerous Canadian inquests, inquiries and studies have consistently identified the lack of information sharing and interop- erability, both in relation to sharing between police organizations, and elements of the Justice system and other government and non–governmental organizations working toward public safety, as key barriers to successful and efficient investigative, operational and intelligence performance, and; WHEREAS the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Information and Communications Technology Committee (previously known as the Informatics Committee) has been encouraging information sharing between law enforcement agencies and other public safety stake- holders since 1998 by hosting national conferences and leading advances such as the Police Information Portal, or PIP, which is managed by the National Police Service of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and; WHEREAS in 2014 the ICT Committee, with funding from the Government of Canada's Centre for Security Science, completed a National Law Enforcement Information Management Study that clearly outlined the lack of interoperability between law enforcement information management systems in Canada and recommended the creation of a national strategy to improve information sharing, and; WHEREAS the ICT Committee of the CACP has completed the develop- ment of the Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy (CCSIMS), as directed by CACP Resolution 2015-05, and; WHEREAS the Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy (CCSIMS) will benefit all Canadians by enhancing community safety and increasing efficiencies at the national level. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police encourage Public Safety Canada to fund and develop a national framework based on CCSIMS for Information Management between federal, provincial, territorial, regional and municipal law enforcement agencies and other justice sector organizations, and; BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police encourage Public Safety Canada to coordinate and fund a CCSIMS justice sector workshop with federal, provincial and territorial justice sector organizations in 2018, to increase awareness of CCSIMS principles, thereby enhancing public safety efforts throughout Canada, and; BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police encourage Public Safety Canada to supply funding for part- time support for the ongoing development of CCSIMS. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY As will be described below, this proposal contains support for an enhanced information sharing vision in the justice sector in Canada. The goal of this proposal is "the right information to the right people at the right time." (See Appendix "A" for a more detailed analysis of this proposal). Current Environment The current law enforcement environment in Canada lacks a national governance or coordination body with federal, provincial, territorial, regional and municipal representation, that is focused on information management. Information vital to a proper decision may exist in one system or may be fragmented over many silos of information. There is limited sharing of information between police agencies and other community safety partners. While the Hub Model, piloted in Saskatchewan, has proven to be an excellent community safety practice, attitudes toward sharing vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. RESOLUTIONS
