Programs and ServicesIn addition to conducting thorough investigations, the SIU realizes the importance of providing other programs and services such as:
- Community outreach to build confidence in civilian oversight and police accountability with both police services and community members in Ontario.
- The establishment of the Director's Resource Committee in 2002 which continues to be invaluable in helping to address community concerns and in assisting the SIU improve relations with the public.
- The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Liaison Program which is geared to providing culturally sensitive guidance in the Unit's approach to incidents involving First Nations, Inuit and Métis persons or communities.
- The Affected Persons Program which allows the SIU to meaningfully respond to the emotional and practical needs of those persons impacted by SIU investigations."
