DERIVATION

Independent Civilian Review into Matters Relating to the G20 Summit, Recommendation No. 2

The Toronto Police Services Board (the Board) routinely approves new policies and amends existing ones, which consequently, requires the Chief to develop new Toronto Police Service (the Service) procedures or amend existing procedures. 

In order to ensure that Service procedures are consistent with Board policy and as a necessary step in strengthening the exercise of the Board’s monitoring and oversight responsibilities, all Service procedures and processes arising from Board direction should be filed with the Board. 

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

  1. The Chief of Police will file with the Board, for information, any procedure developed or amended as a result of Board policy;
  2. Such filing will take place as part of a report submitted to the Board and included on a regular in camera meeting agenda;
  3. In the event that the Board is of the opinion that a procedure developed or amended as a result of Board direction is not consistent with the Board policy, the Board will request the Chief to review the procedure, and to resubmit it at a future Board meeting, with amendments if necessary; 
  4. Any direction from the Board to the Chief with respect to the revision of Service procedures will be with respect to components included in the relevant Board policy and will not be of a specific operational nature;
  5. On an annual basis, the Chief of Police will file with the Board for its information, the complete index of Service procedures, noting those procedures which arise from Board policies; and
  6. Such filing will take place as part of a report submitted to the Board and included on a regular public meeting agenda.
