A Guide to Police Services in Toronto DVD

The Toronto Police Service has created the DVD to provide public with information on police services in Toronto and information on how to access those services. The materials also explain some of the rights and responsibilities under the Canadian law when dealing with the police.

 

The topics covered include:
  • Contacting the police

  • 9-1-1 is an emergency in any language

  • How do I become a police officer?

  • What do I do when police come to my home?

  • What if someone doesn't speak or understand English?

  • Do I have to answer the officer's questions or identify myself?

  • What are my rights if I am arrested?

  • What if someone is arrested and they don't speak English?

  • What should I do when an officer approaches me on the street?

  • What should I do when an officer stops me while I'm driving?
