It is the policy of the Toronto Police Services Board that: 

  1. The Chief of Police will develop procedures to ensure that victims and witnesses of crime will not be asked their immigration status, unless there are bona fide law enforcement reasons to do so; and 
  1. The Chief of Police will establish mechanisms to encourage victims and witnesses of crime to come forward without fear of exposing their status.
