REPORTS ARISING FROM CHIEF’S ADMINISTRATIVE INVESTIGATIONS
The Board will consider three reports from the Chief regarding administrative investigations into the deaths or serious injuries of members of the public, which are mandated whenever the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has been notified. The Chief has developed a public reporting process for these reports following a request by the Board in May of this year. The reports include a discussion of the details of each incident, a summary of the Service’s investigation, including any relevant procedures or legislation which have been reviewed, and a determination as to whether remedial measures were necessary.

This report is prepared annually as part of the strategic planning process and provides the results of the measurement of the Service Priorities, using the performance indicators set out in the Business Plan, as required by Ontario Regulation 3/99. As the report notes, the 2014-2016 Business Plan includes three priorities: i) safe communities and neighbourhoods, ii) economic sustainability and operational excellence, and iii) high quality professional service to the community. The report includes results for the more than 70 performance indicators, as well as information on the activities undertaken by the Service to address the goals and priorities.
