Ontario Civilian Police Commission Serves a Notice of Hearing on Deputy Chief of the Durham Regional Police Service

Following an investigation under s. 25 of the Police Services Act into certain alleged conduct of Dean Bertrim, Deputy Chief of the Durham Regional Police Service, the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC), has determined that a hearing into the allegations is warranted.

Accordingly, a Notice of Hearing and Notice of Particulars have been served on Deputy Chief Bertrim setting out one count of deceit, contrary to the Code of Conduct in the Police Services Act.

The OCPC is an independent, quasi-judicial agency. The OCPC hears appeals, adjudicates applications, conducts investigations and resolves disputes regarding the oversight and provision of policing services. The OCPC’s powers and duties come from the Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.15.
