Man’s Injury not Serious in Nature; SIU Terminates Brampton Investigation

Case Number: 17-OCI-378

Mississauga, ON (27 February, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into the December 2017 arrest of a 52-year-old man by Peel Regional Police (PRP) officers.

At approximately 5:30 p.m. on December 27, 2017, PRP officers responded to a disturbance call at a residence in Brampton. Soon after officers arrested the man, he was taken to hospital for treatment of an injury.

Director Loparco said, “The medical evidence establishes the man did not suffer a serious injury. As such, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
