The SIU assigned three investigators and one forensic investigator to this matter. The investigators conducted witness interviews and gathered evidence. Based on the statements of the independent civilian witnesses and the statement of the 21-year-old man, no evidence exists to indicate that any officer of the WPS contributed to or caused any injuries to that man.
As a result of the preliminary enquiries the Director of the SIU, Ian Scott, has terminated the investigation.
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.
