Internal Task Forces
Policy No: 02/00-12
Section 29 of the Adequacy Standards Regulation requires a police services board to have a policy on internal task forces. In addition, section 13(1)(a) requires the Chief of Police to establish procedures and processes in respect of internal task forces.
For the purposes of these requirements an internal task force is defined as a planned operation established within the police service related to the investigation of criminal activity.
It is the policy of the Regional Municipality of York Police Services Board with respect internal task forces that the Chief of Police will:
develop procedures that address the approval process and accountability mechanisms for internal task forces; and
provide information in the annual report on the number of completed internal task forces established within the police service, the cost to the police service and whether they achieved their performance objectives.
