CPKN Recognized for Excellence in IT Innovation

For the second time in a month, the Canadian Police Knowledge Network has been recognized for excellence in IT-based innovation and productivity. Following a silver standing at the GTEC Distinction Awards in October, CPKN was named to an impressive list of finalists at the Canadian Information Productivity Awards (CIPA) competition.

CIPA, the leading national information technology awards program, is a showcase for Canada's IT leaders and celebrates visionary organizations that have implemented innovative solutions to address business challenges or maximize opportunities. As a finalist, CPKN was presented with a Finalist Achievement Award at the CIPA Awards Gala in Toronto, earning national and international exposure for its work in developing and delivering online training for the Canadian policing sector.

"Our team has worked hard to make e-learning a viable training alternative for front line officers across this country," says Sandy Sweet, VP and COO of CPKN. "The recognition of CIPA's national panel of judges and the support from the Canada's policing community are testaments to our achievements in providing an innovative, value-added service for police."

Created in 2004, CPKN is a not-for-profit initiative of Holland College's Justice Knowledge Network in Charlottetown, PEI. Working directly with police services and training organizations, CPKN offers a comprehensive catalogue of e-learning training options for police and other Canadian law enforcement agencies.
