Toward an Alberta Police Service, the PwC Model:
Since the arrival of the North West Mounted Police in 1874, policing in Alberta has been continuously evolving. From the creation and evolution of independent municipal police, the previous Alberta provincial police, or the successes of First Nations police services, policing in Alberta has not remained static.

Speakers will discuss the recent evolution of policing and law enforcement in Alberta to include the Alberta Sheriffs, the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams, and the unique features of the Alberta Police Service model developed by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

An Opportunity for Evolution in Alberta's Policing:
In the wake of high-profile events in both Canada and the United States, police reform has taken on an added urgency as jurisdictions seek to modernize their police services to meet citizen expectations. 

Speakers will discuss the importance of a modern, professional police service that emphasizes partnerships to address social challenges, expanding police training to emphasize a police services' shared role in resolving social challenges, prioritizing diversity in recruitment to ensure that a police service resembles the community they serve, and the need for police service to implement needed reforms.
