SIU Terminates Stoney Creek Investigation as No Serious Injury Sustained

Case Number: 18-OCI-104

Mississauga, ON (30 May, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into an interaction that occurred last month between Hamilton Police Service officers and a 35-year-old man. 

At approximately 10:30 p.m. on April 4, 2018, Hamilton Police Service officers attended a residence in Stoney Creek in relation to a domestic matter. Upon locating a person of interest, an arrest was made. The arrested man was subsequently taken to hospital.

Director Loparco said, “The man did not suffer a serious injury during his contact with the police. 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.
