Ontario ombudsman blasts ‘outdated’ police training tool that emphasizes weapons over de-escalation, despite repeated calls for change

More than four years after a scathing report cited “neglected” provincial officer training as a factor in fatal shootings, the Ontario ombudsman is blasting the “glacial” pace of police reform as the province has still not fixed central problems he identified.

Now, as yet another request has been made to change Ontario’s “outdated” use-of-force tool — a training method critics say increases the likelihood of deaths involving police — ombudsman Paul Dubé is calling out “a discouraging pattern” where policy makers repeatedly study known problems instead of taking action.
