Canadian Police Knowledge Network: The power of technology, standards, and collaboration
This article is related directly to the 6th International Law Enforcement & Public Health (LEPH) Virtual Conference in March 2021.
The Canadian Police Knowledge Network (CPKN) is a not-for-profit organization that delivers high-quality technology-enhanced professional development for Canadian police. Through collaboration, technology, and standards CPKN has established a credible model that offers a reliable, cost-effective solution to meet the increasingly diverse and complex needs of contemporary policing. This article examines CPKN’s evolution from an online learning service provider to a nationally recognized leader in police learning and professionalization. It specifically explores the role of ongoing collaboration within the Canadian police community, through CPKN, to develop nationally relevant training and to modernize the competency-based management framework to establish more nationally consistent competency standards.
