Provincial Watchdog Issues Report Critical of G20 Police Conduct

G20 Report – OIPRD

The Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), a provincial agency charged with investigating complaints against police, has released its long-awaited report on law-enforcement activity during Toronto’s G20 summit. Its contents are fairly damning. Planning was poor, the report says. Communication could have been better. The police could have been more sparing with their use of force. Even the famously awful temporary detention centre at the Toronto Film Studios comes in for criticism for being “poorly planned, designed, and operated.” The OIPRD’s review included interviews with more than 600 officers and 200 civilian witnesses. The release of the resulting document comes just days after an RCMP watchdog issued its own report absolving Mounties of any responsibility for the mess. Read all 300 pages in full either above, or by downloading the PDF here. Torontoist will have a more detailed analysis of the OIPRD report tomorrow.
