OACP LEARN Guideline for Police Record Checks Statement
OACP Statement on Changes to the OACP LEARN Guidelines on Police Records Checks
On February 26, 2014, the OACP Board of Directors passed two motions regarding Changes to the OACP LEARN Guidelines on Police Records Checks:
- The OACP will engage in public education about the benefits and limitations of Criminal Record Checks;
- The OACP accepts the presumption against disclosure of non-conviction records; and
- The OACP will craft a narrow public safety exception to protect the most vulnerable people in our communities.
- Advocate for changes to Provincial legislation regarding police record checks; and
- Implement an evidence-based, centralized procedure for determining when non-conviction information can be disclosed.
The OACP Law Enforcement and Records (Managers) Network (LEARN) will update the OACP LEARN Guideline for Police Record Checks by June 2014, and work with community stakeholders on public education after June.
