Saskatchewan To Let Police Release Domestic Violence Records To People At Risk

The Canadian Press, 05 Nov, 2018
  • Saskatchewan To Let Police Release Domestic Violence Records To People At Risk
REGINA — Police in Saskatchewan could soon be allowed to release information about someone's abusive past if they believe that person's partner may be at risk.  
 
 
Dubbed Clare's Law, the new legislation is said to be the first of its kind in Canada and is aimed at reducing the province's high domestic violence rates.
 
 
Justice Minister Don Morgan says he hopes the law will protect people from a partner's abusive behaviour.
 
 
The idea behind the law started in Britain after Clare Wood was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2009.
 
 
Wood was unaware of her partner's violent past and her father advocated for more disclosure from police after her death.
 
 
Saskatchewan has the highest rate of police-reported interpersonal and domestic violence in the country.
