Public Meeting on Expansion of Use of Conducted Energy Weapons (CEWs) to be held on Tuesday September 24 from 4:30-7PM
The Toronto Police Services Board, through its Mental Health Sub-Committee, is seeking input into the wider use of CEW’s and will hold a public meeting for this purpose. This meeting will be held on:
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 24 FROM 4:30-7PM
TORONTO CITY HALL (100 QUEEN STREET WEST),
The meeting is going to be held in COUNCIL CHAMBERS as oppose to Committee Room 4 which is very small for a expecting large crowd of speakers.
Specifically, the Board is interested in hearing answers to questions such as the following:
• Do you think that there should be an expansion of CEWs to front-line officers in Toronto?
• What conditions do you think should be attached to the use of CEWs?
• Do you have specific suggestions regarding training in CEW use?
• What measures do you think could help ensure accountability with respect to use of CEWs by police?
Deputations will be limited to 5 minutes in length; to sign up to make a deputation, please contact Sheri Chapman at email@example.com or at 416-808-8080. In addition, written submissions may be provided by email to this address.
For the record the oldest victim in Ontario is a 80 year old woman by members of the Peel Regional Police. We don’t want the same mistakes to happen in Toronto.
