Assalamu Alaykum Warahmutullahi Wabarakatu,
The Ontario Government is undertaking a full and independent Review of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), and the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC). The purpose of this review, as outlined in the Order in Council, is to:
Make recommendations on how to enhance the transparency and accountability of the police oversight bodies while preserving fundamental rights.
Ensure the police oversight bodies are effective and have clear mandates.
Reduce overlap and inefficiencies between these bodies.
The Reviewers, Justice Michael H. Tulloch and his team, have provided the Somali community with a session of our own to raise particular and broad issues we are facing and make recommendations on these issues.
