Nominations to Advisory Committee on Provincial Police Standards

The Province has requested that UBCM nominate two local government representatives to the Advisory Committee on Provincial Police Standards.  Given the technical nature of the issues that the Advisory Committee will be considering, UBCM is looking to nominate two local government staff.

The purpose of the Advisory Committee on Provincial Police Standards is to assist the Province in reviewing existing, and developing new, BC Provincial Policing Standards. One of the goals of the Advisory Committee is to implement the recommendations for new police standards outlined in the Braidwood Inquiry, and the Oppal Commission of Inquiry into Missing Women. The Advisory Committee is to provide feedback on what standards to develop, suggest subject matter experts who could assist in drafting standards on specific issues, and to review draft standards before they go forward for final approval.

It is anticipated that the Advisory Committee will meet three times a year in Vancouver or Victoria. The nomination will be for one year, and the expenses for attending the meetings will be the responsibility of the nominating local government. The first meeting of the Committee is scheduled for:

November 14, 2013
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Police Services Division, Vancouver or Victoria Boardrooms

The role of the Committee and Terms of Reference will be discussed during this initial meeting.

If you are interested in submitting a nomination to the Advisory Committee on Provincial Police Standards, please contact UBCM Senior Policy Advisor, Ken Vance, by October 15, 2013.
