For Immediate Release
New Investigations: Jurisdiction Sustained
These are no new cases where the Chief Civilian Director has sustained jurisdiction and a full investigation is underway (since last update July 22).
Preliminary Investigations: Pending Jurisdiction Decisions
Below are cases where B.C. police agencies have notified the IIO of critical incidents – cases of potential serious harm or death where the affected person was or may have been in contact with officers. The Chief Civilian Director will sustain jurisdiction if serious harm/death AND a nexus or relationship between the injury and an officer’s action are confirmed. If the preliminary investigation does not establish serious harm and nexus, the Chief Civilian Director will release all jurisdiction. Those cases marked SUPI are still under preliminary investigation.
