Departing deputy watchdog wants end to police investigating police

The departing deputy police complaint commissioner is advocating for an independent civilian body to investigate police misconduct and criminal behaviour, which would put an end to the current practice of police investigating themselves.

“I think it’s natural that former police officers will be biased in favour of police, because it’s hard not to be,” said Rollie Woods, himself a former police officer who last week retired from an 11-year career with B.C.’s civilian-run police watchdog.
