The Voluntary Alternative Dispute Resolution Program (VADRP)
1st, 2011 the Ottawa
Police Service’s Voluntary Alternative Dispute Resolution
Program (VADRP) has been administered by the Canadian International
Institute of Applied Negotiation (CIIAN).
CIIAN worked closely with the OPS to establish and manage a roster of mediators, oversee case flow, and set evaluation objectives for the VADRP.
We have also designed and delivered two customized training courses for the OPS. The first was a half-day workshop entitled "VADRP Training Session for Professional Standards Section Investigators". The second course was entitled "Conflict Management Skills for Police Officers: A One-Day Skills-Based Workshop" and it was delivered at Algonquin college to new recruits joining the OPS.
CIIAN can provide similar consulting and training services to other police departments.
