Police Oversight Crosses Border

The Independent Police Review’s two newest investigators, Ramsey AlQaisi and Deirdre Perez, recently traveled to Edmonton, Canada for an investigative workshop held at the University of Alberta. The training was conducted by Gareth Jones, a renowned expert in the field of police oversight and accountability, and covered a variety of topics, with particular attention given to interviewing techniques and investigative best practices.

The IPR investigators were provided with the opportunity to work on theoretical investigation plans, and learned the importance of procedural fairness, thoroughness and objectivity.
