The Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) has completed its Section 25 Investigation into the conduct of former Orangeville Mayor, Sandy Brown (Mr. Brown), when he was a Member of the Orangeville Police Services Board.

The Investigation concluded that Mr. Brown violated Sections 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 13 of O. Reg. 421/97 made under the Police Services Act-Members of Police Services Boards-Code of Conduct.

The Investigation also concluded that Mr. Brown is unsuited to be a member of a police services board in the Province of Ontario.

As Mr. Brown is not currently a member of any police services board, the OCPC has no jurisdiction to proceed with a misconduct hearing.

The Section 25 Investigation recommended that, if Mr. Brown becomes a member of a police services board, at any time in the future, he may face a hearing on misconduct charges.

The OCPC has adopted the Investigation’s recommendation and all of its findings.
