Fatal shooting raises questions about use of police service dogs

The fatal shooting of an Indigenous man in Campbell River in a confrontation that also left a police service dog dead raises questions about the use of police dogs to apprehend suspects, says a criminal defence lawyer.

Sarah Runyon said she’s concerned there’s a “systemic over-reliance” on the use of police service dogs in situations that call for de-escalation.
