The results of a two-year investigation by the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) into dozens of investigations conducted by the Thunder Bay police service is set to be released Dec. 12.

The OIPRD launched a systemic review, the first of its kind in the province of Ontario, that examined Thunder Bay police service’s policies, practices and attitudes on missing persons and death investigations involving Indigenous peoples.

According to a statement released Wednesday, the OIPRD reviewed more than three dozen investigations by the Thunder Bay police.

“The systemic review report is a culmination of an extensive review and analysis of 37 TBPS investigations, dozens of interviews with former and current TBPS members, First Nations Police Services, Ontario’s Chief Coroner and Chief Forensic Pathologist, and more than 80 meetings with Indigenous and non-Indigenous community and service organizations, individuals and Indigenous leaders,” the release from the OIPRD said.
