What was this engagement about?
The Province sought input to help develop guiding principles and standards to promote and ensure equality in the delivery of policing services in B.C. The Province committed to establishing these standards in response to a recommendation from the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry (MWCI), however this work also draws on the themes and findings of other inquiry and review processes across Canada.
Citizen were invited to participate through an online questionnaire or by emailing written submissions.
Feedback was accepted until April 16, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
How can my contribution make a difference?
We want to consider a broad range of viewpoints on this subject. Between March 12 and April 16, we feedback was collected to further inform our work as we develop standards to promote unbiased policing. This will help ensure that the guiding principles and standards reflect the needs and interests of all British Columbians.
All feedback and input collected will be summarized and posted to the engagement website. The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General will consider the feedback in developing BC Provincial Policing Standards in 2018.
