Current Opportunities

 

Courtwatch Committee

Department: Administration
Deadline: October 30, 2020


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION

The Courtwatch Committee will observe Provincial Court proceedings in Terrace and report to Council on a regular basis. We are searching for volunteers from diverse backgrounds who have an interest in observing the courts, and who will be available to attend the Court on weekdays.

Background:

The Courtwatch Committee was originally proposed by Council as part of a proposed “Good Neighbour Bylaw” in August 2019. The idea of the entire bylaw was to mitigate unwelcome behaviour, vagrancy, and loitering, and provide improved public safety and awareness of bylaws within the City of Terrace. Council decided to create the Courtwatch Committee as a way to monitor court processes in Terrace to provide a public presence in the courtroom and collect information regarding the court processes and outcomes. This would allow Council to analyze the trends and outcomes of court cases and show those involved in the judicial process (like judges, jurors, etc) that there is a public interest in how courts handle cases.

A Committee of the Whole meeting on July 28, 2020, worked out some of the details of this program. 

In addition, the Terrace Standard did a story about this program following that meeting, which may also be helpful for background.
