SIU Terminates Mississauga Investigation as No Serious Injury Sustained

Case Number: 18-OCI-233

Mississauga, ON (12 September, 2018) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into an incident that occurred last month in Mississauga.

On August 5, 2018, Peel Regional Police Service officers responded to a home in the Burnhamthorpe Road West and Mavis Road area in relation to a report of a suicidal man. Upon arrival, officers became involved in an interaction with the man, and one officer deployed his conducted energy weapon. The man was subsequently arrested, and then transported to hospital for treatment. He was released from hospital two days later.

Director Loparco said, “The medical evidence indicates the man did not sustain 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.
