On April 5, the Police Ethics Commissioner was invited to a public consultation in the context of the tabling of Bill 14 - An Act to amend various provisions relating to public security and to enact the Act to assist in locating missing persons - in order to comment on the provisions that more specifically concern police ethics.
Both in her opening address and in the brief submitted to the Commission des institutions, the Commissioner reiterated the importance of developing and deploying a preventive approach to ethical breaches while insisting on the need to increase accessibility to the ethics recourse and to offer personalized support to their more vulnerable clientele.
She also emphasized that additional resources would be a prerequisite for the implementation of the proposed new measures if they were adopted at the end of the parliamentary proceedings.
In conclusion, the Commissioner thanked her team for the colossal work done during the pandemic and their stakeholders for their contribution to the improvement of the police ethics process.
