Justice Michael Tulloch released his government-commissioned review of the three bodies — the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), the Officer of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) and the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) — that oversee policing in the province on Thursday April 6, 2017. The report contains 129 recommendations to make police watchdogs more transparent and accountable.
