The Saskatchewan Police Commission has recently developed a new policy. The policy is in relation to contact interviews and “street checks”. Chief of the Saskatoon Police Service Troy Cooper will now be required to develop a local policy and procedures that include requiring members receive contact interview training and the maintenance of training records in relation to contact interviews. Chief Cooper will also be required to establish procedures and requirements for the recording and maintenance of statistical records. The new policy developed by the Saskatchewan Police Commission says that contact interviews will be voluntarily only, and that the public is not required to answer questions or speak with investigators during interrogations. It also states a person can walk away at any time. The policy hopes to achieve the Commission’s mandate of promoting adequate and effective policing across Saskatchewan.
