1.  City Council adopt the Ombudsman's Investigation report (April 2015) and in so doing, request that the Toronto Public Service implement all of the recommendations.

 

Ombudsman Recommendations:

 

Taking into account all of the evidence gathered through this investigation, I am making the following recommendations:

 

1.  That Security ensure its personnel are properly subject to management’s direction and not that of elected officials.

 

2.  That the City ensure Security policies and practices are adhered to by all involved parties.

 

3.  While Security has in place a practice, it should consider establishing a procedure for providing escorts.

 

4. That, if a procedure is established, the City provide the Ombudsman with a draft of this process by August 1, 2015, and a finalized version by September 1, 2015.

 

5.  That the City review on an ongoing basis the skills and resources needed by Security, and supplement them as required.

 

6.  That Security ensure those responsible for conducting complaint investigations possess the requisite skills and knowledge to do so.
