Acting Inspector, Duty Inspector Program, Ottawa Police Service Emergency Operations

Mark Patterson – Acting Inspector with the Ottawa Police Service Emergency Operations Division. I am in my 19th year of policing and currently hold the position as a Duty Inspector where I have been for 1 ½ years. I was previously a Staff Sgt in Guns and Gangs as well as Court Security / Temp Custody. The majority of my policing career has been spent in the Criminal Investigations Section with Guns and Gangs and Intelligence as well as Covert Operations. I was a recent member of the 2015 CACP Global Studies Program where myself and 16 other colleagues were tasked with researching and examining Cyber Crime in both the domestic and global context. I assisted in the development of an executive report to the CACP Board of Directors on Cyber Crime – Police Roles and Responsibilities Within a Collaborative Framework as well as an Action Guide on Cyber Crime for Canadian Policing.
