 Introduction to this survey  

  In 2017 the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission (NSHRC) launched an investigation into the practice of police street checks. This investigation is investigating the role of street checks within modern law enforcement. We are also investigating allegations of racial profiling and how street checks may impact public confidence in police organizations.

As part of our inquiry, we are conducting an internet survey to try to capture the experiences and opinions of Halifax area residents who were not able to participate in our public forms or feel that they would like the opportunity to express their concerns.

It should be stressed that this survey is open to all Halifax area residents – regardless of racial background, social class, education, gender, age or sexual orientation. The more people we here from the more valuable the survey results.

At this time, we want to stress that your participation in this survey is completely confidential. We do not want you to provide your name or other personal information and we will not analyze data in a manner that could identify specific individuals.

Please answer the questions below as truthfully as possible. Please complete the survey on only one occasion.
