Ontario Police Lose Right to Request ID at Random
It's going to be a little harder for police officers to do their job as we roll into 2017.
As of January 1st police are now unable to request identifying information at random.
New legislation requires cops to have a distinct reason for requesting ID, it cannot be because a person is in a high-crime area, or because a citizen refuses to answer a question or walks away.
The province created these new regulations largely as a way to combat racial profiling, an issue that does not often come up in small cities such as Brockville but more so in the larger cities throughout North America.
The province does specify the new rules do not apply if police ask for ID while conducting a traffic stop, arresting or detaining someone, executing a warrant or investigating a specific crime.
