THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ January 25, 2022 (LSNews) Stephen Warner of Office of the Solicitor General, Sylvia Jones who
I can confirm that, as permitted by the Police Services Act, the Solicitor General has asked the Ontario Civilian Commission on Police to investigate the Chief, Deputy Chief and administration of the Thunder Bay Police.
It is important to note that the Ministry of the Solicitor General does not have the legal authority to order changes or impose sanctions on commissions or police services. The Ontario Civilian Police Commission has certain powers under the Police Services Act to intervene in the misconduct and administration of the police service.
As there are complaints pending before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Ontario Civilian Commission on Police, I am unable to provide further comment at this time.
In a statement to the media, Thunder Bay Police Service Board Chair Kristen Oliver said:
“The Thunder Bay Police Services Board welcomes the involvement of the Ontario Civilian Commission on Policing (OCPC) as we have referred them several issues for investigation and action — some more than a year ago. year. On Monday, Jan. 24, Mayor Bill Mauro spoke directly with the Solicitor General, Sylvia Jones, expressing the need for a response from the CCOP. The Commission will cooperate fully with all investigations so that we can move forward.
The police association is concerned about the continued inaction of the TBPS and the TBPSB
