The Association of Black Law Enforcers supports programs that address the needs of its law enforcement members as well as the concerns of the community.

CONSULTATIONS
Consultation with senior members of police services, association representatives and Police Services Boards, to maintain fair and equitable employment opportunities.

MENTORING
A.B.L.E. provides support and guidance to potential law enforcement applicants on a one to one basis. To promote a positive perspective on policing a diverse community, A.B.L.E. addresses graduating classes at the Ontario Police College.

RAP SESSIONS
A.B.L.E. is frequently called upon to conduct rap sessions with students at middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities. In this environment students are able to express concerns, receive information and ask questions relating to criminal justice matters in an informal manner.

RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
A.B.L.E. is concerned about the alarming number of black and racial minority youth who are involved in the criminal justice system. These workshops are designed to educate youths on their rights and responsibilities as it pertains to interaction with law enforcement officials and discourage negative involvement in the criminal justice system.

PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND FORUMS
A.B.L.E. has and continues to consult with agencies such as the Special Investigations Unit (S.I.U.) to discuss issues that affect both the police and the black and racial minority community. The organization also participates in and co-sponsors criminal justice forums that deal with topics of concern to the community as a whole.

STUDENT RECOGNITION
In recognition of outstanding academic achievement, A.B.L.E. presents an annual award to a Humber College Law Enforcement Program student. This award is presented during the school's Annual Student Recognition Night.

LAW ENFORCEMENT CAREER EXPO
In association with a variety of agencies, to promote career opportunities, A.B.L.E. hosts an annual career fair. This exposition is directed at university, college and high school students. The objectives are to:

  • create an environment where black and racial minority professionals can expose youth and the community to a wide range of career options
  • to reinforce the “Stay in School” message and emphasize the need for young people to prepare themselves for skill requirements that are constantly changing
  • to provide all of the participating services, agencies and organizations with an opportunity to continue to build and maintain meaningful partnerships with the diverse communities they serve.
