Christopher’s experiences identified a gap in practice, so he implemented a peer-support program for officer-involved shootings. The program, available across Canada, provides a direct officer to officer connection, focusing on mental well-being, post-incident investigation processes, and inquest expectations.
In Canada and the United States, Christopher has extensive experience as an instructor and keynote speaker in both the classroom and larger conference venues, providing education and insight on a variety of tactical subjects and in-depth incident debriefings.
Currently, in his role as a provincially certified Use of Force Instructor for the largest municipal police academy in Canada, Christopher educates frontline officers in de-escalation, critical thinking, tactical warrant entries, firearms, and dynamic simulation training.
