Independent Investigations Office

SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement in partnership with the BC Civil Liberties Association and Pivot Legal Society present a talk and panel discussion: The Independent Investigations Office (IIO or Office) was established to conduct criminal investigations into incidents that involve B.C. police officers and result in death or serious harm. It is a civilian-led Office that has been established in accordance with the recommendations made by the Braidwood and the Davies Inquiries. The long term goal is to set a new standard for civilian-led investigation and accountability that will enhance the public’s faith in the dedicated officers working to keep them safe. The Chief Civilian Director Richard Rosenthal has stated that the public can expect an investigative approach that will be transparent, accountable and fair to citizens and to those who may be subject to an IIO investigation.
