Thanks for the responses. I was just curious how the accountability worked for RCMP contract policing in BC (and I supposed, by extension, all of the other contract provinces). In Ontario, every municipality that either maintains its own service or contracts another service, including the OPP, to provide policing services, has to maintain a Police Services Board. There are a variety of rules regarding composition, size, etc. If the OPP provides services without a contract (so-called 'fee for service' coverage), that municipality has to maintain a Police Advisory Committee.
