Local residents and woman’s advocates filled up the council chambers in Stratford Thursday to call on the unaddressed issues of sexual assault cases.
Tensions ran high and advocates expressed their concerns about officers taking sexual assault seriously.
Mayor Dan Mathieson said that he plans on bringing in a senior officer, a female who has experience in domestic and sexual assault to have them review the information and write a formal report.
The police service is currently conducting an informal review on the 48 percent unfounded rate between 2010 and 2016.
Emily Murphy Centre and Optimism Place, organizations who provide support to women who face any kind of abuse attended the meeting Thursday, however have not been taken into account for the review yet.
An update is expected at the next police services board meeting on April 20th.
