TORONTO – Just how Ontario’s police should be policed is the topic of a major report expected Thursday in which a judge with the province’s top court will reveal the results of his comprehensive review of the issue.
The 263-page report by the Independent Police Oversight Review is the product of seven months of fact-finding and information gathering across the province.
Justice Michael Tulloch, who headed the government-commissioned review of the three bodies that oversee policing in the province, makes 129 recommendations aimed at streamlining oversight and making it more transparent and accountable.
“It is a broad law-reform proposal,” senior review counsel, Danielle Robitaille, said of the report. “I hope it’s well received and the government takes it up.”
