Police watchdog reviewing complaints against senior DRPS staff

Police watchdog reviewing complaints against senior DRPS staff
The Ontario Civilian Police Commission said Thursday that it has received a request for an investigation into the Durham Region Police Service Board by the Solicitor General.

There are reports that this request stems from allegations of corruption, mistreatment, and abuse of power against Durham Region police chief Paul Martin and his leadership.

Among the allegations in the Star’s report: a senior command threatened two officers with “trumped up accusations of misconduct in attempts to intimidate…those who had fallen out of favour with the management” and “a high-ranking officer lied on the stand to ‘cover up for the chief’ and then was given a promotion.”

The report shows one of those complaints is coming from the former head of Durham’s police union, Randy Henning.
