The Ottawa Police have been accused of amid racial profiling amongst the cities visible minorities. In 2004, an 18-year old black teenager was driving home in his mothers Mercedes-Benz with his window down when an Ottawa Police officer immediately did a U-turn and began to follow him. The officer pulled over the teen for no apparent reason.

There have been several cases of alleged police brutality by members of the Ottawa Police services. Most notable, Constable Martin Cardinal was caught on camcorder banging a female's head on his cruiser. Cardinal was convicted, but ordered to rejoin the force.

A city council committee wants Ottawa's anti-graffiti budget more than tripled next year to almost $2.5 million but was persuaded to save the city's two legal graffiti walls. The transportation and community and protective services committee unanimously endorsed a plan Thursday that would boost the city's $585,000 budget for graffiti prevention and removal by $1.9 million. But the plan was revised so it would not wipe out a wall downtownn and one in the city's south where graffiti is allowed. The plan must go to full council for final approval. At Thursday's meeting, a number of speakers favoured cracking down harder on illegal, unwanted painting and scribbling on structures around the city that they say hurts tourism and civic pride. "Nail the little donkeys that are doing the damage," said Rob Sproule, chair of the city's business advisory committee, who said he is sick of the problem.
