Calendar of Events T he CACP has had a productive winter. You've reinforced that we are on the right track in providing professional development opportunities to our members. Both the Information and Communications Technology Committee workshop Information Management: A Critical Success Factor in the Economics of Community Safety and the Research Foundation's From Crisis to Opportunity: Using Research to Build Safer Communities were very successful. Registration numbers and support were high. Participants listened and exchanged views and great ideas with interest and enthusiasm. To the organizing committees, a special thank you for a job well done. We've initiated and continued discussions on important issues, in particular the legalization of marijuana and actions we can take on missing and murdered indigenous women. We're very much looking forward to hosting the Moving Forward to Safer Futures: An inclusive dialogue among police, policy makers and Canada's Aboriginal Peoples conference May 30-June 1. The CACP has made it a priority to be a constructive partner in developing solutions and opening new forms of dialogue around issues that affect the community safety and well-being of Canada's Aboriginal peoples. This conference is a major step in that direction. We will be exploring themes including missing and murdered indigenous women, ranging from on-reserve and urban issues affecting community safety and wellbeing to reconciliation, community destiny and self determination to internal education for police members, to name just a few. This promises to be a must participate event. Plan to be a part of it. In closing, I'd like to highlight our annual conference to be held in Ottawa, Ontario August 14-17, 2016. The theme Public Safety in a Digital Age: Real Victims – Real Crime will focus on addressing the threats posed to public safety in our communities via technology. I'm already looking forward to getting insights from the great group of experts lined up, and the interactive discussions on this important topic. I look forward to seeing you there.
