On March 29, 2018, the Interim Chairperson initiated a review into the RCMP's strip search policies and procedures, pursuant to subsection 45.34(1) of the RCMP Act, in follow-up to the Commission's Final Report into Policing in Northern British Columbia

The Commission will examine:

  • the degree to which the relevant recommendations contained in the Final Report into Policing in Northern British Columbia have been implemented;
  • whether RCMP national and all divisional policies and training are adequate, appropriate, sufficient and clear; and
  • whether, in practice, the RCMP is abiding by and has the means of assessing/evaluating member compliance with relevant policies.

Once the investigation is complete, a report containing any findings and recommendations will be provided to the Minister and the Commissioner, as well as provincial ministers responsible for policing in contract provinces.  A copy of the report will also be made publicly available.
