Ontario Human Rights Commission unveils policy to tackle racial profiling in law enforcement
New policy unveiled Friday at gathering of senior members of Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police
Ontario's Human Rights Commission says racial profiling in law enforcement is profoundly harmful.
It says the police practice hurts black, Indigenous and other racialized communities.
The commission today released a new policy on eliminating racial profiling called Under Suspicion.
It says it's the first such policy in the country.
Recommendations include acknowledging the problem, collecting data on police stops and independent accountability.
It also calls for officers to wear body cameras.
