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.

This proposed regulation covers several matters including definitions and clarifications for the purposes of the Act, provision of uniform and equipment, ranks, political rights and activities, duties of members of a police service, court security, and duties of chiefs of police.

SOLGEN welcomes your comments and feedback.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
SOLGEN may be consulting with stakeholders to identify potential costs associated with the given regulation coming into force.
