According to [Global News] reported on May 24, Alberta Volunteers recently established Canada’s first searchable police misconduct database to examine police violations or violations that have occurred over the past 30 years, both internal and external in related findings.

According to the report, the project aims to open up policing discussions and strengthen police accountability. Much of the database information comes from publicly available sources such as briefings, court decisions, disciplinary hearings and freedom of information documents. At present, the organization has recorded more than 400 violations and the specific information of nearly 500 police officers involved, including names and badge numbers.

Although it will take about 18 months to complete the project, the database is a good start to holding police accountable, the head of the Edmonton Bar Association said. Both the Calgary and Edmonton Police Departments have publicly welcomed the move, respectively.
