In conjunction with the Nova Scotia Criminal Justice Association’s (NSCJA) Annual General Meeting, Chief Jean-Michel (JM) Blais will have the privilege of giving a public lecture on policing in our community in the 21st century.
“I’m honoured that has NSCJA invited me to give a public lecture on the challenges police face today. It is my hope that my presentation will provide perspective on the current climate of policing in Halifax and around the world and the ways in which police agencies must adapt,” says Chief Blais.
“The public lecture by Chief Blais will undoubtedly be a very engaging opportunity,” says Jean Flynn, President of the NSCJA. “It is also an important event for the association as it assists in meeting our mandate of promoting awareness and understanding of current criminal justice issues in Canada and creating opportunities to disseminate education and information on topical issues in criminal justice.”
NSCJA is a non-governmental provincial association and an affiliate of the Canadian Criminal Justice Association which was founded in 1919. It is one of the largest affiliates of the Canadian Criminal Justice Association, with over 200 members comprised of individuals working in all aspects of the justice system and their partners in the fields of health, education and social services. The association and its members are involved in a range of activities aimed at promoting a humane, equitable and effective criminal justice system.
