Director's Reports

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is the civilian law enforcement agency in Ontario that investigates incidents involving police or select special constables (officials) where there has been death, serious injury, an allegation of sexual assault or the discharge of a firearm at a person by the official. 
 
Under the Special Investigations Unit Act, 2019, the Director of the SIU must determine based on the evidence gathered in an investigation whether there are reasonable grounds to believe that a criminal offence was committed.  If such grounds exist, the Director has the authority to lay a criminal charge against the official. Alternatively, in cases where no reasonable grounds exist, the Director cannot lay charges.  In cases where no charges are laid, the SIUA prescribes that the Director must publish a report on the SIU website containing information including:

  • The reasons why the investigation was thought to be authorized.
  • A detailed narrative of the events leading to the investigation.
  • A summary of the investigative process, including a timeline noting any delays.
  • A summary of the relevant evidence considered.
  • Any relevant video, audio or photographic evidence, de-identified to the extent possible.
  • The reasons for not laying a charge against the official.
For cases closed prior to December 1, 2018, please contact the Ministry of the Attorney General or visit this website: https://www.ontario.ca/page/special-investigations-unit-siu-directors-reports.
 
The SIU does not post any reports dealing with investigations of a sexual nature because the release of information related to investigations of sexual assault allegations is associated with a risk of further deterring what is an under-reported crime and undermining the heightened privacy interests of the involved parties.
