The role and powers of law enforcement and national security services are of increasing relevance in a world defined by growing concern over crime and terrorism. In addition, environmental uncertainty and the emergence of new and virulent diseases have brought the spectre of civil emergency to the forefront of government planning. This title provides a thorough narrative of the law that applies to law enforcement and private security services in Canada. It also explains the legal framework that governs national security oversight and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Finally, it sets out the law that empowers government to declare a civil emergency and act accordingly. Topics covered include:

  • The constitutional and legislative framework
  • Provincial, regional and municipal police services
  • Police powers, duties, independence and discretion
  • Civil liability of police
  • Private police and security
  • Role and powers of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service
  • Other agencies and laws involved with national security
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Federal and provincial emergency management
  • COVID-19 pandemic response
