Ontario Police College
The Ontario Police College and the Canadian Police Knowledge Network have adapted the Advanced Patrol Training Course (APT) program into an e-learning course.
This module explores the issue of investigative detention and what constitutes reasonable grounds to suspect that an individual may be connected to a crime. Based on case law, it outlines the conditions that must exist for common law authority for investigative detention and search of an individual in accordance with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
