Inquest Jury Recommendations in the Death of Patrick Shand

Patrick Shand died during an apprehension by store employees and mall security at a Toronto-area shopping centre. A 2004 coroner’s inquest determined that death was accidental resulting from ‘restraint asphyxia’ and that drug use was a factor. The jury made twenty-two recommendations that have been incorporated in Ontario security industry legislation. Policing & Security Management Services Inc. provided expert testimony at the inquest.
