More professional regulation of police favored in Ontario

A recently published report on police reform by Ontarian Justice Michael Tulloch states that, as a way to tackle the lack of trust in the police service in the area, a regulatory college of policing should be established. Such measures are already implemented in Wales and England, where the colleges aim to establish standardized educational and training requirements for all police officers. The colleges could also, Tulloch argues, help to diversify and modify a police culture in Ontario that has traditionally been "white, male and hyper-masculine".
