Friday 27 September 2019: Early Registration Deadline

FBI Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Molly AMMAN.

We are very pleased to announce that FBI Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Molly AMMAN will lead our 2-day Workshop ‘Assessing Anonymous Written Threats’ on November 13th & 14th. Molly has been a dedicated supporter of CATAP for many years, and is a truly dynamic and engaging presenter. As a certified profiler from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, part of the Critical Incident Response Group at Quantico, Virginia, Molly has expertise in threat assessment, with a focus on domestic terrorism, active shooters and mass attacks. Furthermore, her proficiency in policy and law regarding the application of national assets to crisis situations around the world ensures this year’s workshop is a can’t-miss.

 

Mr. James HARDY.

We are also extremely fortunate to confirm Mr. James HARDY as our 2019 Conference keynote speaker. With over 40 years in policing with RCMP and the Calgary Police Service, James’ remarkable career includes acting as Strategic Incident Command in several high profile civil, criminal and environmental incidents, including the Calgary floods and Fort McMurray wild fires, but most notably as the primary investigator for the Mayerthorpe tragedy in 2005. A true leader, James recognized early on in his career the importance of supporting his teams with integrity, compassion and respect both during and after a major violent event. We look forward to James sharing his experiences and lessons learned from his unique perspective.
