The CIPSRT Public Safety Steering Committee (PSSC) works in collaboration with the CIPSRT Scientific Directorate and the CIPSRT Administrative Team to provide guidance and advice on strategic directions.

The membership of the PSSC serves as conduit to reflect the interests and concerns of the public safety personnel (PSP) community via their leadership. Through their membership on the PSSC, PSP organizations have a platform to share respective expertise and ensure that the activities and research undertaken by CIPSRT are pertinent and will have impact on resolving the issues and concerns raised by the PSP community.

The PSSC includes leadership representatives from each of the following organizations: Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs, the Canadian Association for Police Governance, the Canadian Police Association, the Correctional Service of Canada, the International Association of Firefighters, the Paramedic Association of Canada, the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Union of Safety and Justice Employees.
