The Police Records Check Coalition (PRCC) is a group of individuals and organizations concerned about the governance and use of police records in Ontario. Members include individuals with expertise in mental health issues, policing, the criminal justice system, human rights law and privacy law. The purpose of the PRCC is to end the discriminatory and stigmatizing practice of requesting, releasing and making decisions based on non-conviction information, including mental health and addictions-related information.
The PRCC is currently co-chaired by:
Ontario Association of Patient Councils
Abby Deshman (currently on leave – interim co-chair Laura Berger)
Canadian Civil Liberties Association
Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario
Schizophrenia Society of Ontario
John Howard Society of Ontario
