Kate Lines was a member of the Ontario Provincial Police for over 33 years. In 2010 she retired at the rank of Chief Superintendent in charge of the OPP’s Investigation and Support Bureau with over 500 uniform and civilian employees working on major criminal investigations across Ontario. Throughout Kate’s career she worked as a police officer on uniform patrol, undercover drug investigations, fraud investigations, intelligence and many major crimes such as homicide and sexual assault.


In 1991 Kate was trained by the FBI in Quantico, Virginia over ten months to become Canada’s first female criminal profiler. Kate assisted in major violent crime investigations throughout Canada, United States and the United Kingdom. Kate was voted Canadian Police Leader of the Year in 2004.


Kate is now a licensed private investigator and employee of Investigative Solutions Network. She specializes in corporate internal investigations including workplace harassment, violence and human rights investigations.   She is also the company’s director of training and education. Kate is currently the volunteer board chair of the national non-profit, Victim Justice Network. In 2016 Kate received a Honorary Doctor of Laws from the University Of Ontario - Institute Of Technology for her career as pioneer of women in policing and her leadership in criminal profiling.


Kate’s autobiography, Crime Seen: From Patrol Cop to Profiler - My Stores From Behind The Yellow Tape, was published by Random House Canada and it became a national bestseller the following week.  Kate's memoir focuses on the courageous journeys of victims, their families and the dedication of law enforcement, advocates, and victim support service providers.
