SIU investigated 20 cases in London last year, seven in Windsor, five in CK

When it comes to the number of investigations by the province’s Special Investigations Unit, London had the most in the Western Region, and Windsor had the fourth highest.

The agency released its annual report detailing the number and type of investigations it carried out last year on Thursday.

While Windsor was in the middle of the pack province-wide with seven investigations last year, London had the fourth highest number with 20 behind just Toronto Police Service, Peel Region Police, and the service in Ottawa.

Across Ontario, there were 382 investigations last year, a slight increase from 380 the year before.

Most often, the SIU was called in to investigate what it called “custody injuries”. A total of 198 or 51 per cent of cases involved a suspect who was injured while in police custody.

The second highest number of investigations, 15.18 per cent province-wide, involved alleged sexual assaults.

Incidents involving injuries or deaths caused by firearms were low on the list at 3.14 per cent and 1.8 per cent.
