IIO forwards report to Crown Counsel after rough Terrace arrest

The province’s police watchdog has forwarded it’s report to the Criminal Justice Branch in its investigation of a rough Terrace arrest.

Last October the Independent Investigations Office says it was alerted by the Terrace detachment after it received video allegedly related to an incident in May, 2014 that saw a male youth injured while being taken into custody.

In a statement released today, the IIO says a report is only forwarded if they believe the officer, or officers involved, committed an offence.

But it notes, it’s ultimately up to Crown Counsel to decide whether to press charges or not, and which ones; also adding that the IIO has a lower threshold for submitting a report to Crown Counsel.
