Sensitive mental health info goes into police databases, shared with US government

The Information and Privacy Commissioner has released her investigation report to allegations that Ontario police are routinely inputting sensitive mental health information into national police databases, which are not only accessible to all Canadian police departments, but also the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security.

You can get the full report here: IPC - Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner/Ontario | Commissioner Cavoukian calls for Ontario Police Services to stop the indiscriminate disclosure of attempted suicide information.

This indiscriminate disclosure of information is not in compliance with Ontario's privacy laws, she concluded.
