Chair Oliver Media Release re Concerns about the Police Board

Chair Oliver Media Release re Concerns about the Police Board

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~ January 18, 2022  (LSNews)  Chair Kristen Oliver, Westfort Councillor provided a media release stating “We are aware of comments issued by Board Member Morriseau today, and would refer you to this statement previously issued by the Board  

She go on to state:
The Board, together with the Thunder Bay Police Service, is working to provide the policing that our communities expect and deserve. In addition, we'd like to add that the Board (with the exception of member Morriseau) is united, working well, and far from "collapse." We are committed to building a police service that is constantly improving, meeting challenges and working in the best interest of citizens. We take our duties very seriously and perform them with integrity and professionalism. In fact, we've just presented our new Strategic Plan which sets out a bold vision for the future, and has been well received by the Service, the public and other stakeholders. You can find it on our website as well.

Also, an update on the OIPRD report will be presented at Wednesday's  board meeting. Regular updates are provided on progress made on this and other files mentioned in Ms. Morriseaus's letter - as we work through implementing recommendations and taking other required steps.

Back on November 20, 2021  THUNDER BAY POLICE SERVICES BOARD RESPONDS TO HRTO APPLICATIONS

Tuesday November 30, 2021 — The Thunder Bay Police Service Board takes complaints and concerns extremely seriously. As required under the Police Services Act, The Board must follow the appropriate processes and protocols - to address concerns, manage formal complaints, and/or refer them to the appropriate investigative bodies - such as the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. We have not received notice of any formal applications from the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. If that happens, we will cooperate fully and act appropriately within our existing powers, responsibilities, and mandate. We cannot comment on any specific allegations or investigations. We would like to assure the public that we are committed to supporting our police service members and fulfilling our obligations to those that we serve.

Further, recent public comments made on these matters and on the leadership of the Police Service are not reflective of the Board's views or positions. The Board speaks with one voice and all official comments by the TBPS Board will come from the office of the Chair or her designate.

We urge all parties to allow due process to take its course.
