Welcome to the website of the
Centre for Police Accountability (C4PA)
If you are a victim of police brutality or misconduct, you are not alone. Many people have a shared experience of being abused by the police. Unfortunately, people feel powerless when it comes to getting justice against the police. The C4PA is working to change this.

Counter Surveillance Video Project
Video recording and photographing the police is a great way to make them more accountable.
Post your video and pics to our site and expose police misconduct when it happens. Share videos and photographs through our Counter Surveillance Video Project and learn about other peoples experiences with police.

No ID card.
Except in limited circumstances, it is not an offence to refuse to identify yourself. It is your right to refuse. Be part of the NO ID Campaign. Carry a card and exercise your right to refuse.

Learn about the different legal issues relevant in civil law suits against the police.
The law library features case law as well as information about the cases. We hope that this page will become a useful resource for lawyers, paralegals, and plaintiffs.
