No Charges to Issue in Relation to Man’s Arrest by OPP Caledon Detachment Officers

Case Number: 19-PCI-200

Mississauga, ON (27 February, 2020) ---
On March 1, 2019, officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a 911 call requesting police assistance. OPP officers responded to the residence and arrested and handcuffed a 43-year-old man, following which they transported him to the Nottawasaga OPP Detachment. The man later filed a complaint about the arrest with the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), with the matter coming to the SIU’s attention in August of 2019. SIU Director Joseph Martino has determined there are no reasonable grounds to believe that any police officer involved in the man’s arrest or imprisonment, assaulted him, causing any injury, and the file is closed.

Full Director’s Report (with Incident Narrative, Evidence, and Analysis & Director’s Decision): 

The SIU is a civilian agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or an allegation 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 investigations to the Attorney General.
