SIU Terminates Investigation into Interaction between Police and Man in London

Case Number: 18-OCI-034

Mississauga, ON (17 April, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into a 2011 interaction that occurred between a 36-year-old man and London Police Service officers. The SIU was notified of the incident, by the man, on February 6, 2018.

In the morning hours of December 6, 2011, police went to the man’s residence in order to arrest him. There was an interaction, which involved the use of a conducted energy weapon. The man was eventually taken into custody, and then transported to hospital.

Director Loparco said, “The evidence establishes the man did not suffer a serious injury. Accordingly, 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.
