On December 8, 2020, the Waterloo Regional Police Service contacted the SIU to report that a woman whom they had taken into custody on November 29, 2020 - the Complainant - had come forward with information alleging that she was sexually assaulted at the police station following her arrest. 

The SIU commenced an investigation and identified two officers as subject officials for purposes of the investigation. 

The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to believe that either subject official committed a criminal offence in connection with the allegation.
