Session 12: Gunz 'n' Gangz

The purpose of this session is to familiarize Crowns with the Guns and Gangs unit of the Ottawa Police Service. The session was lead by two senior officers in the unit. The presentation on gangs involves an overview of the definition of a gang and the make-up of Ottawa based gangs. Gang history, symbols and activities are also addressed.

The guns presentation focusses on criminal code definitions and their practical applications. A variety of firearms were on hand (disabled, safetied and unloaded!) so Crowns could touch and examine the weapons.
