Join this live webcast on Wednesday, April 13 at 10:00 a.m. EST.

Mr. Wennekes will host a discussion with Al Treddenick on the private sector support for the CACP through the Private Sector Liaison Committee (PSLC) and in particular the upcoming Fraud and Corruption Forum.

The PSLC is comprised of representatives from law enforcement, other government departments, and the private sector and was created to be a conduit that strengthens the partnership between private enterprise and law enforcement. This is especially important given the current fiscal realities being experienced by the law enforcement communities. An open dialogue on the issues, concerns, and obstacles involved could form the basis for Private-Public Partnerships which may assist in finding cost effective and efficient solutions to Canadian communities safe.

Examples of this are the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre where the financial community and law enforcement have come together to combat criminal activity. Another example is the upcoming Forum on Fraud and Corruption. Private enterprise have very strict rules to adhere to when conducting their business activity. Cooperation and sharing of information concerning fraudulent or corrupt activities is essential if the goal is the reduction and elimination of this threat. The first step is creating a greater public awareness of this issue which is the goal of the upcoming PSLC Forum.
