The province plans to give people in Nova Scotia more time to file an official complaint against police.
Right now, someone who wants to file a complaint with the independent Office of the Police Complaints Commisioner has six months to do so. The province plans to extend the time limit to one year.
The change would apply to all municipal police forces in Nova Scotia. The time limit on complaints against the RCMP is already one year.
