Police / School Safety Protocol

The Durham Regional Police Service and local school boards reaffirmed their commitment to school community safety with an updated Police/School Safety Protocol.

The protocol, required by the Ministry of Education and the Solicitor General, clearly delineates the relationship, roles and responsibilities of police officers and school officials. It identifies when police should be called in and what kinds of information can be shared. It also provides clear definitions for occurrences such as "child abuse" and "criminal harassment" so that everyone is using the same language.
