"The purpose of this document is to establish a protocol between the Toronto Police Service, the Toronto District School Board, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, the Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud and the Conseil scolaire Viamonde. This protocol will confirm the working relationship and appropriate responses to incidents where police involvement or intervention is requested or required in school related incidents. This protocol seeks to expand on the 2006 protocol and incorporate elements of the Provincial Model for a Local Police/School Board Protocol introduced by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services."--Introduction.
