Canada: OPP’s revamped sex assault investigation strategy includes new training, oversight from advocacy groups
CBC News – September 15, 2017
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has unveiled a revamped strategy to handle sexual assault reports after a seven-month internal review into cases previously dismissed as “unfounded.” The report also identified the need for improved oversight and accountability for sexual assault investigations. In response, the OPP will establish committees in each of its six regions to oversee policy and training. The members of those committees will include the Ministry of the Attorney General’s Sexual Violence Advisory Group, child protection services and local victims services organizations.
