Police use cell phones to violate your rights

The Charter guarantees certain political rights to Canadian citizens and civil rights of everyone in Canada from the policies and actions of all areas and levels of government. It is designed to unify Canadians around a set of principles that embody those rights.

Police use cell phones to violate your rights

Police should not be able to access their cell phones while on duty!!

Police officers including many officers from the Peterborough OPP are in the habit of using their cell phones instead of their radios to communicate with each other while investigating.

This act of, officers communicating with each other on cell phones, is done intentionally so an accused person will not have access to full disclosure of police conduct when an accused receives dispatch recordings in their disclosure.

This is a typical and intentional violation of section 7 of the public's Charter of Rights and Freedoms by police.

It is very important to video any and all police conduct, whether it is an incident that you are involved with or someone else is involved with. Your video may uncover misconduct by police that you are not even aware is taking place.

A complete and very thorough review of police notes and dispatch recordings could also uncover were police have given information to other police via cell phone. Look for information that an officer has that was not acquired through dispatch.

If you are aware of an officer using a cell phone while investigating, it should be brought up in court when the officer's conduct is in question.

The officer should be cross examined on WHY they used the cell phone instead of a radio and WHAT did they talk about while on the cell phone. The officer will likely lie when answering these questions however a good judge will feel the officers credibility is questionable.

When the judge is aware that your rights have been violated, it is very likely that you will receive a remedy by the court and the police officer's prosecution will be unsuccessful.
