Director of Information Technology @ National Police Federation
Company: National Police Federation
Position: Director of Information Technology
After a landmark ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada in 2015, members of the RCMP were granted the right to form an association and collectively bargain with the federal government, resulting in the creation of the National Police Federation (NPF). The NPF represents Members of the RCMP from a fact-based, and balanced perspective to promote and enhance the rights of regular Members and reservists below the rank of Inspector. Today, the NPF is proud to represent over 20,000 members of the RCMP and is the sole certified bargaining agent for regular members and reservists. The NPF is by far the largest police association in Canada and one of the largest in the world. We have a growing and committed staff team, who are inspired by the opportunity to create and deliver meaningful value and positive change for our Members across the country.
