Our user-friendly website reflects our objectives and contains information about civilian oversight of law enforcement both nationally and internationally.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am also pleased to announce that CACOLE's 2013 conference will be hosted by Prince Edward Island’s Office of the Police Commissioner and take place in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on May 27 – 29, 2013.

It will be an informative conference and I invite you to mark this important event on your calendar now! For conference updates, please continue to monitor our website.

Yours truly,
