Modulating eventfulness, mitigating potentiality:
Examining the political work of police liaison teams in Ontario

Police Liaison Teams (PLT) have become a primary vehicle to manage Indigenous land defence actions and mass demonstrations. A complex blend of pre-emptive policing and community policing, police liaison interventions extend well beyond the spatio-temporal confines of any given protest. In this talk, Paul Sylvestre adopts a critical geographic perspective on the relationship between space and event to discuss the proliferation of police liaison strategies and to examine the ways in which PLTs territorialize settler state power and subtly reconfigure the political terrain over which political dissent is organized.
