Independent Police Review of the G20 Summit

At this morning’s meeting, City Councillors acknowledged the Toronto Police Services Board’s decision to hold an independent Civilian Review of the G20

Summit.  This review will identify and study the issues raised by the Board and the public regarding the oversight, governance, accountability, transparency, communications, and supervision.

Within the next two weeks, the Toronto Police Services Board will finalize and present the Terms of Reference for the Review.  The public is invited to make recommendations on the Terms of Reference.

With the release of the Terms of Reference, the Board will also announce the individual who will lead the review. The Board is currently pursuing a person to lead the Review who has a high level of experience and skill in reviewing complex matters such as this, and whose neutrality and support from all sides will be above reproach.

The Review will last about 8 to 12 weeks. The Review will conclude with a report to the Board with recommendations regarding policy and structural issues.

Individual complaints should be forwarded to the Office of the Independent Police Review Director, Gerry McNeilly. The website is www.oiprd.on.ca.

The public submissions with regards to the Terms of Reference can be made to the Board Office at [email protected]. For further information and updates, follow the Chair’s blog at www.tpsb.ca.

The Board believes that this Independent Civilian Review is the most appropriate way forward, allowing us to review the oversight and policy aspects of policing at the G20 while not jeopardizing ongoing investigations or individual or policy complaints.
