G20 Review Hearings

G20 Review Seeks Public Input: Book your spot to speak at the hearing
Save the Dates: June 1st, 6th, 13th
The G20 Review is looking for input.  Going forward, what lessons should shape policing policies for future major events? At public hearings across Toronto, you’re invited to speak and share your ideas and recommendations.
On June 1st, 6th, and 13th, 2011, the Review will hold hearings in Toronto.  This is a rare and valuable opportunity to contribute to the governance of Toronto’s Police Service.  This is the first and only set of hearings where the public’s input will be gathered and presented to the body that establishes policies for the effective management of the Toronto Police Service.
Formally, the hearings will provide individual members of the public, organizations, and other stakeholders with the opportunity to share their views and opinions on the role that civilian oversight should play concerning the policing of major events.  Informally, it is extremely important that the public has a safe and actionable opportunity to voice its concerns and make suggestions, should any exist.
To guarantee one of the five minute speaking slots at any one of the three hearings, individuals must complete a simple application form: www.g20review.ca/submissions.php. The deadline for submissions has been extended to Tuesday May 31st. Submissions are being accepted on a first come basis. The hearings will be open to the public and all are welcome to attend to observe the presentations.
About the Review
The Independent Civilian Review into Matters Relating to the G20 Summit was launched on September 23, 2010 by the Toronto Police Services Board.  The Review will examine issues concerning the role the Board played with respect to the policing of the G20 Summit that was held in Toronto on June 25-27, 2010.  The Review will also examine the role played by the Toronto Police Service during the G20 Summit, with a view to determining whether the plans developed and implemented were adequate and effective for policing of the Summit.  The Board appointed the Honourable John W. Morden, a former Associate Chief Justice of Ontario, to conduct the Review and provide a report and recommendations.
