Local Lawyer’s Motion on Systematic Racism, Discrimination and Bias Adopted by the Ottawa Police Service Board

Posted By Administration, June 26, 2020
The CCLA would like to share the following message on behalf of Daljit S. Nirman:

It began a few months ago with conversations with police leaders, Ottawa Police Service (OPS) members and members of various communities across Ottawa. All these discussions and several local incidents that were brought to my attention, highlighted how racism and systemic barriers continue to be an issue within the OPS and in our City.

As a person of colour with my own experiences to reflect on and as a community representative on the OPS Board, it is my role to bring that perspective forward and to then work with my colleagues to provide constructive guidance to the police service.

I wanted to outline some specific, tangible activities to complement the work proposed in the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Action Plan at OPS, that would ensure that anti-racism work is on-going and that we are moving towards becoming the police service our community and members deserve. It is thanks to these discussions that I began work on a motion on Systematic Racism, Discrimination and Bias for Equitable and Inclusive Services for the members and community at OPS. My motion called for reforming its systems and structures to create a more equitable and inclusive organization, including tracking incidents of discrimination within the force, reviewing its racial profiling policy and coordinating with the city's new anti-racism secretariat.

I am pleased to announce that the motion was adopted unanimously by the OPS Board on June 22, 2020. To view the motion, please click here.
