2018 Ontario Expert Witness Drug Investigators Conference
When: May 30-31, 2018
We are in an age where complex criminal investigations are unable to be prosecuted without the assistance of subject matter specialists. Police Officers lead this area as those identified as Drug Experts. The OACP Drug Substance Abuse Committee has identified a need to provide training to support officers who provide expert evidence in the multi-faceted area of Drugs.
This requires us to identify, mentor, and provide on-going training to Officers who already have been recognized as experts in the courts to provide opinion evidence. Further, there is a strong need for the appropriate succession planning in identifying and establishing new experts. The resources of the established expert pool needs to be shared among all police services across the Province. Shortages in our collective expert pool have been identified and need to be addressed collectively, as we all require individuals who possess these special skills for a multitude of our serious prosecutions involving those persons trafficking drugs or participating in a criminal organization.
Attendees will receive training from subject matter experts from various government, medical, and law enforcement agencies.
A networking event will be hosted in the evening on Wednesday May 30th at the hotel.
$125.00 +HST (includes light breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks)
**Delegates are required to book their own accommodations. Please ensure you book by Friday, May 4th to receive the preferred rate.**
