Information re: acting for officers in SIU investigations

The Law Society has prepared a document to remind lawyers of their obligations under Regulation 267/10 - Conduct and Duties of Police Officers respecting Investigations by the Special Investigations Unit.

The document - Information for lawyers  – Acting for Police Officers in Ontario Special Investigations Unit (“SIU”) Investigations - addresses the intersection between the Regulation and the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Lawyers who act for police officers in Special Investigations Unit investigations are strongly encouraged to review the information.
