Case Number: 17-OCI-204

Mississauga, ON (14 September, 2018) ---
In the evening hours of August 6, 2017, a Peel Regional Police (PRP) officer attended a condominium building in Mississauga after the concierge reported that an unwanted individual was in the lobby, and would not leave. During the arrest of the 29-year-old man, he sustained serious injuries. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against a PRP officer in relation to the arrest.
