Calgary.  Be Part of the Energy!

Welcome to an innovative and vibrant city.


The City of Calgary is an exciting business centre and an outstanding meeting and convention destination. As the fourth-largest city in Canada, Calgary has a lot to offer visitors from around the world. In the downtown alone, you can discover over 1,000 shops, 200 restaurants and 50 entertainment spots. Within the city there are also 8,000 hectares of open space and parkland to explore.

As the urban backbone of Western Canada’s corporate and financial community, Calgary has come to symbolize rapid growth, enhanced quality of life and a future of unlimited horizons. Within this cosmopolitan small town, delegates and patrons will enjoy Calgary’s safe environment, cleanliness and legendary western hospitality. Not to mention the tantalizing array of pre- and post-meeting adventures awaiting you in the spectacular Canadian Rockies, only an hour’s drive from the city’s centre.

The Calgary International Airport is Canada’s third largest and offers world-wide reach to ensure easy accessibility.

IAWP 2018 will address “leading change” in leadership, organizational culture, and subculture within policing. World renowned speakers will discuss recruiting, employment, and retention of employees from diverse background concentrating on race, culture, gender, religion, sexuality, and family status.

In today’s policing environment there is a need to focus on the everyday changes that are occurring as a result of advancements in technology, societal dynamics, and crime issues. Therefore, the conference will provide sessions related to integrated response to crime, building relationships with external agencies, and fostering stronger community partnerships. Professionals with experience in crime prevention, investigations, and offender management will discuss strategies on how to best distribute resources to address crime, while ensuring communities remain engaged with their police agencies.
