REPORTING REQUIREMENT

 

LEGISLATION

Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.15, as amended, s. 31(1)(c).

DERIVATION

Independent Civilian Review into Matters Relating to the G20 Summit, 2012, Recommendations 33, 34 and 35

Mass detention centres to be used at large policing events pose unique policy concerns and operational demands. Where such a facility is required, it is important that these considerations are taken into account during its planning and design. 

Therefore, it is the policy of the Toronto Police Services Board that where a mass detention centre is required, the Chief of Police will develop an operational plan which addresses the design and processes for the facility, including the development of procedures related to the care and management of prisoners, taking into account relevant legal principles and policy considerations and provide a report to the Board summarizing the key features of such an operational plan.
