RCMP watchdog calls out 'unreasonable' use of force during wellness checks

The independent watchdog for the RCMP says it frequently has concerns about Mounties' "unreasonable use of force" during mental health wellness calls.

In response to some recent high-profile and controversial incidents involving the RCMP, the chair of the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC) put out a statement today highlighting some of her agency's concerns about Mounties' actions.

"With respect to interacting with people in crisis, the commission's findings have consistently highlighted concerns about police adopting a 'command and control' approach — an authoritative style of dealing with a non‑compliant person," said Michelaine Lahaie.
