Review of the RCMP’s Policies and Procedures regarding Street Checks

On April 23, 2018, the Interim Chairperson initiated a review into the RCMP's street check policies and procedures, pursuant to subsection 45.34(1) of the RCMP Act.

The Commission will examine:

  • whether the RCMP's national and divisional policies and training are adequate, appropriate, sufficient and clear; and
  • whether, in practice, the RCMP is abiding by and has the means of assessing/evaluating member compliance with relevant policies.

Once the investigation is complete, a report containing any findings will be provided to the Minister of Public Safety and the RCMP Commissioner, as well as provincial ministers responsible for policing in contract provinces. A copy of the report will also be publicly available.
