The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) is an independent civilian-led agency with a mandate to investigate serious incidents involving British Columbia police, including municipal police officers and members of the RCMP. IIO Investigations have the potential to provide the evidentiary basis for a trial in criminal court. The legislation under which the IIO operates ensures the investigative approach is without bias, accountable and fair to citizens and to officers under investigation. The IIO works to build community confidence in police accountability.
Reporting to the Team Director, the IIO Investigator is a collaborative member of a diverse investigation team conducting complex high-profile investigations into critical incidents in BC where it appears a person may have died or suffered serious harm as a result of the actions or inactions of a police officer. All IIO Investigators are required to complete the mandatory Investigator Certification program.
The BC Public Service is committed to creating a diverse workplace to represent the population we serve and to better meet the needs of our citizens. Consider joining our team and being part of an innovative, inclusive and rewarding workplace.
