Toronto Police Board approves carding policy

Officers will have to undergo new training and supervision guidelines

At a special meeting Thursday night, the Toronto Police Services Board voted unanimously to approve a carding policy.

Carding practices by police were often criticized for being discriminatory and racist.

Under the reviewed policy, officers would be required to tell those that are stopped, that they can leave at any time since they are not under arrest.

Officers will have to undergo new training, reporting guidelines and supervision under the new policy which will see 31 recommendations phased in over the next 3 years.
