Regulation - LGIC

Responses to Active Attacker Incidents Regulation under the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019

Regulation Number(s):
Instrument Type:
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019
Summary of Proposal:
In March 2019, the government passed the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019 (CSPA), as part of the Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act, 2019. Once in force, the CSPA will replace the current Police Services Act (PSA). The CSPA is an opportunity to modernize policing and enhance community safety in Ontario.

As part of the work to bring the Act into force, the Ministry of the Solicitor General (SolGen) is working on regulations and standards on a number of matters.

At this time, SolGen is requesting public and stakeholder input on a proposed standard that establishes requirements for the response to, and management of, incidents involving an active attacker. These incidents, such as school shootings, have the potential for significant injury and loss of life.

The ministry's proposed standard will address adequacy and effectiveness requirements, including the provision of equipment; and roles and responsibilities of individuals and units.

For more detail, please see the attached draft regulation.

SolGen welcomes your comments and feedback.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
The ministry's proposed standard will address adequacy and effectiveness requirements, including the provision of equipment; and roles and responsibilities of individuals and units.
