The Police Leadership Forum of Canada
Seventh Police Leadership Award
The Police Leadership Forum of Canada (PLF) was founded in 1996 to promote leadership at all levels of police organizations and among their community partners across Canada .
The Police Leadership Award was established in 1999 to recognize and encourage a standard of excellence that exemplifies leadership as an activity, not a position. It celebrates pride in service to the public.
The award is open to front-line officers, middle managers, senior officers, chiefs of police and community partners, all of whom receive equal consideration for the award. Judged by a panel of practitioners from policing and related fields from across Canada and by members of the academic community, the purpose of the award is to increase the effectiveness, influence and quality of leadership in policing – from both a police and a community perspective.
Past recipients include:
- Supt. Bud Bechdholt, RCMP
- D/Chief Robert Kerr, Toronto Police
- Sgt. Barry Gordon, Cape Breton Regional Police
- Insp. Robert Taylor, Vancouver Police Department
- C/Supt. Kate Lines, Ontario Provincial Police
- Chief Edgar MacLeod, Cape Breton Regional Police
Nominations for the seventh Police Leadership Award open May 15, 2006. This year’s award will be conferred at a leadership event in Ontario in the autumn. Please see attached nomination package for further details.
