Independent Street Checks Review

by The Honourable Michael H. Tulloch 2018 //bit.ly/2TqtDv4

Recommendation 5.13
“Suspicious activity” should be defined in the Regulation to mean an activity where, under all of the circumstances, there are objective, credible grounds to request identifying information.

As outlined in detail earlier, there is little to no evidence that a random, unfocused collection of identifying information has benefits that outweigh the social cost of the practice. Given the social cost involved with a practice that has not definitively been shown to widely reduce or solve crime, it is recommended that the practice of randomly stopping individuals to gather their identifying information for the creation of a database for intelligence purposes be discontinued in those remaining jurisdictions that still employ the practice.

Recommendation 5.15: No police service should randomly stop people in order to collect and record identifying information and create a database for general intelligence purposes.

[Bulletin: The Report recommends police report on who is getting street checked based on age, race, and other human rights grounds ,including disability. Advocates can challenge police if some groups are being targeted (Black, Indigenous, youth). These police interactions can create preconceptions of danger in police minds. Does this put vulnerable people in danger?
