Canadian Police College Library

Last week I was in Ottawa for a conference. I stayed at the Canadian Police College and I had a chance to visit their library.

If you like police hats, this is the place to be:

The library had all the Criminal Codes, dating back almost 40 years. Look at how things have changed between 1979 to 2017.  The page count of Martin’s Annual Criminal Code has doubled.  And the text is more dense.  Today the law is more complex and there is more case law:

Before leaving Ottawa I paid my respects at the RCMP National Memorial Cemetery:
