Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 16:30 to 18:00
Join Windsor Law and the Centre for Cities’ Professor Danardo Jones for a virtual session exploring the role and composition of municipal police services boards, police services budgets and more.
In the session, Prof Jones will discuss the police oversight framework in Ontario and the participatory rights of citizens in the governance of local police services. In that vein, we will review critical sections of the Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act. The session is open to all, but attendance by community members interested in advocating before the Windsor Police Services Board or other police boards is especially welcomed.
Danardo Jones joined the Faculty of Law as an Assistant Professor in January 2021. Professor Jones comes to the Faculty with years of criminal law experience, having worked as a staff lawyer at various Legal Aid organizations across Eastern Canada (Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia) and Ontario. He was also the Director of Legal Services for the African Canadian Legal Clinic. In that role, he intervened in precedent-setting cases before the Supreme Court of Canada (Tran v. Canada (Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness), 2017 SCC 50; British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal v. Schrenk, 2017 SCC 62). Professor Jones’s research interests include criminal law, criminal procedure, criminal sentencing, and race and the law.
