August 2013 –

Members of OACUSA who employ Special Constables commissioned a report to examine the role and responsibilities of campus special constables in Ontario.  This report was prepared by George Rigakos, a professor of the political economy of policing at Carleton University in Ottawa.

The goal of this report was to provide an up-to-date review of legislative, operational, training, and oversight mechanisms currently governing campus special constables in Ontario.

This report and its contents will be of assistance to universities, colleges, the provincial government and police services which are involved in discussions regarding the future of law enforcement and community safety on our campuses.

We welcome any comments or feedback you have after reading the report.
