On July 10, 2008, the Department of Justice released the Report of the Advisory Panel to the Minister of Justice on the use of the Conducted Energy Device by Law Enforcement Agencies In Nova Scotia (PDF)
This concludes a two-step process for a ministerial review of CED use and policies in Nova Scotia which began December 7, 2007. In the first phase, the Minister of Justice directed that local and cross-jurisdictional research be completed, to include data on policies and procedures respecting CED use in Nova Scotia and a review of research currently underway in other jurisdictions. The report of that investigation — Nova Scotia Conducted Energy Device Review — was released on March 5, 2008.
As part two of the process, the Minister struck an advisory panel with a mandate to review the report (i.e. examine the current policies and procedures governing CED use; the use of CEDs by law enforcement agencies; and the results of jurisdictional reviews outlined in the report) and provide advice to the Minister regarding the use of CEDs by law enforcement agencies in Nova Scotia.
