The Toronto Police Services Board has approved an independent review of police tactics during the G20 protests.
The board, a civilian agency overseeing the police force, met Tuesday morning to discuss oversight of police actions during the summit.
The CBC's Lisa Naccarato, reporting from the meeting, said the board will decide on the scope of the review in two weeks at the latest. Police services chair Alok Mukherjee will draw up a short list of candidates, and the board will vote on their choice by then.
