In early 2016, the Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners was asked for input on the street checks issue by the Saskatchewan Police Commission. The provincial Commission is the body that sets out province-wide guidelines and procedures to be followed by local police services.
The Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners, in its role as a conduit between Saskatoon citizens and police service regulators, undertook a survey of the public on this issue. The response rate was outstanding as more than 150 Saskatoon residents provided their opinions. The Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners forwarded each and every response directly to the provincial police commission.
In so doing, the Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners ensured that Saskatoon residents had a direct voice into provincial policy making.
