0 0

The day before a report on how police deal with people in crisis, the province is stressing it stakes the issue very seriously.

Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services Yasir Naqvi says they have made sure there are proper protocols in place.

Former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada the Honourable Frank Iacobucci will present his independent report on lethal police encounters with people in crisis tomorrow. It's expected to focus on police interactions with people who are experiencing a mental or emotional setback, as well as those whose behaviour brings them into contact with officers.

This report was called for after the shooting death of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim on a Toronto streetcar last summer.

Naqvi says he looks forward to the recommendations.

Toronto Police have six Mobile Crisis Intervention Teams that include and officer and a nurse equipped to deal with people who are distressed.
