CARL has made submissions to the Independent Civilian Review into the Missing Person Investigations arising out of the McArthur case. It is clear that current police policies with respect to undocumented individuals have resulted in fear of reporting crimes among undocumented and their families. Our submissions underscore that current policies are not justified by law, and can and should be changed immediately, both for the sake of victim protection and good policing. We take the position that encouraging the reporting of crimes, which saves lives, should the number one priority.
