"The commentary received by the Committee indicates that the discussion paper on disciplinary dismissal elicited a good deal of interest within the Canadian police community. Conclusions which can be reached on the basis of the respondents' views are the following. i) While more managers are leaning towards non-punitive disciplinary measures, the disciplinary processes tend to be based on a punitive model. ii) While differences in procedure and methods of operation across the country are inevitable, somewhat more consistency would undoubtedly be better for both the police and the public. iii) Effective communication between managers and employees is a key element to improve disciplinary systems. iv) While there are obvious differences between the police environment and the private sector, there are nevertheless lessons to be learned from successful companies."--Pages 10, 11.
