Today, the province’s Special Investigations Unit released its 2019 Annual Report.

The Report provides an overview of the SIU’s key initiatives, investigation statistics and significant cases handled by the Unit over the past year. All content in the Report is for 2019 except for the financial data, which reflect the fiscal year 2019-20.

The Report is available on the SIU’s website in English and French:



The SIU is an independent government agency that investigates the conduct of officials (police officers as well as special constables with the Niagara Parks Commission and peace officers with the Legislative Protective Service) that may have resulted in death, serious injury, sexual assault and/or the discharge of a firearm at a person. All investigations are conducted by SIU investigators who are civilians. Under the Special Investigations Unit Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether the official has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, cause a criminal charge to be laid against the official where grounds exist for doing so, or close the file without any charges being laid
  • publicly report the results of its investigations
