“On June 16, 2004, the Edmonton Police Commission held a public hearing on the issue of whether there ought to be some form of civilian oversight of police investigation into citizen complaints of inappropriate police conduct. The John Howard Society of Alberta was invited to present the Society‚Äôs perspective on this issue and, in the short time available between being so invited and the public hearing date, put together a brief presentation highlighting some of the issues around this contentious topic.”
