On 24 February 2009, during a ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, the Governor General presented CISC Deputy Director General William (Bud) Garrick with the Order of Military Merit (OMM). The Order honours officers for their commitment to Canada and recognizes outstanding meritorious service in duties of responsibility and for demonstrating dedication and devotion beyond the call of duty.
Bud was invested as an Officer in the Order of Military Merit for his conspicuous merit and exceptional service to the Canadian Forces Military Police, in particular for his leadership and dedication while serving with the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service. Congratulations to Bud on receiving this prestigious award!
Joanne Lalonde is responsible for the professionalization of CISC’s Secretariat and was recognized by the Director General with the Award of Excellence. The award recognizes Joanne’s outstanding contribution and her exceptional leadership to the CISC community. Ensuring structure and order for nearly two decades, she represents the image of CISC with both grace and respect setting a rare standard of performance. Please join us in congratulating Joanne!
The CISC National Research and Methodology Development Unit liaises with intelligence agencies and academic institutions domestically and internationally to share information and techniques. In this capacity, Ms. Natasha Tusikov presented two papers at the Canadian Society of Criminology conference at York University in Toronto in October 2008. The paper, "Developing Harm Analysis to Rank Organized Crime Groups: The Canadian Method" evaluates work on harm analysis undertaken in Canada in light of similar explorations in the U.K. The second paper, "Toward a Risk-Based Analysis of Organized Crime" offers a critique of the pluralist and bureaucratic/hierarchical models of organized crime and proposes a hybridized model that will form the theoretical foundation for the risk assessment of organized crime in Canada.
For her work at this conference, the Canadian Society of Criminology awarded her the Outstanding Praxis Paper for the 2008 Conference. This award recognizes research which is considered to have a significant impact on the administration of criminal justice, law or policy in Canada.

2006 Webber Seavey Award
Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) was recognized as a Semifinalist for the Webber Seavey Award for its Strategic Early Warning System for Organized and Serious Crime (SEWS). The award, presented at the 2006 IACP conference, is bestowed for quality in law enforcement, and recognizes the top 25 law enforcement programs. This year’s top 25 were selected from more than 120 applicants.
The award panel cited the innovative approach of the project, led by Gregory O’Hayon, Ph.D., which focuses on emergent events and phenomena that could potentially alter the organized and serious crime situation in Canada. “Built upon well-established concepts and principles from national defense and other sectors, and adapting methodological practices from the social sciences, the project provides clarity though highly focused criminal forecasts.”
