Ontario Civilian Police Commission Concludes Investigation into Former Orangeville Mayor

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.
