In June 2022, the Service released the findings of Phase 1 of its RBDC Strategy, based on analysis of data collected in 2020 of officers’ perceptions of an individual’s race in use-of-force and strip searches.

As a result, the Service has identified 38 action items and is committed to working with communities to get this right.

Follow our progress as we expand the types of data the Service collects and analyzes, continue to engage with members and communities, and co-develop and implement actions in response.
