B.C. looks to tweak legislation governing civilian police watchdog service

The B.C. government has proposed two changes to the Police Act meant to address concerns with the province’s civilian police watchdog, the Independent Investigations Office (IIO).

The proposal comes amid growing concerns about the amount of trained civilian investigators and efficiency in the IIO’s investigations.

The first amendment plans to temporarily reduce hiring restrictions for two years, while the IIO continues to develop a civilian oversight investigative officer training program, the-first ever training and certification program of its kind in Canada.
