The IIO aims to achieve investigative excellence and transparent reporting of serious police incidents for British Columbians. The IIO intends to do this by sharing notifications relating to investigative files that meet the serious harm and death threshold of a police-involved incident.

If the CCD concludes that an officer may have committed an offence, he may report the matter to Crown Counsel. If he does not make a report to Crown Counsel, he is permitted by s.38.121 of the Police Act to publicly report the reasoning underlying his decision.

Below is a list of all IIO files that are either currently being investigated, have been referred to Crown Counsel or have been concluded with a public report. Click on the file number to see any related media releases regarding each file.

There are several search fields to make it easier to find a particular case you are interested in. Search by file number, date, location and police jurisdiction.

The data reported on this page is based on initial reports to the IIO from a third party who initiated the IIO investigation, and should not be relied upon for statistical purposes. For any changes that may have occurred to this file following the IIO investigation, please refer to the relevant IIO public report or media release.

If the IIO receives a notification and it determines that the incident is not within the IIO’s mandate, it is recorded as an advice file for information only file and is not included in the records below.
