Statement from JIBC Board Chair

The Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) issued the following statement from Robert Kroeker, the Chair of the Institute’s Board of Governors:

“Recently, some members of the media have taken to disrupting operations at JIBC, including entering into locked and secure staff areas without invitation or permission, pursuing matters that have not involved JIBC. These events are taking attention away from the education and training of justice and public safety professionals. Students, staff, faculty and other Board members should not be subject to these intrusions.

“Over the past 35 years, during my time both in corrections and policing, I have had the great privilege to be both a student and an instructor at JIBC and have nothing but admiration for the organization.

“I am most appreciative and honoured to have been able to contribute to this wonderful institution, and to support the fantastic work of the people who make JIBC what it is, by serving on the JIBC Board of Governors over the past five years.

“While my term as a Governor concludes shortly, I have taken the decision to step down from the Board effective immediately to remove the possibility that students, staff and the work of JIBC may experience further disruption.”
