Joey Coleman: Hamilton's police chief says ombudsman misinforming public

Hamilton's police chief says ombudsman misinforming public

Hamilton’s chief of police Glenn De Caire calls Ontario ombudsman Andre Marin’s report on the Special Investigation Unit ‘*Oversight Undermined’ *a “dramatic over simplification of complex issues” stating those who have not “read Overnight Undermined are uninformed, and those that have read it are misinformed.”

The chief’s statements are contained in a five page letter sent to the Attorney General of Ontario expressing De Caire’s disagreement with Marin’s report stating the Hamilton Police Service has been “failing to co-operate” with and “ignoring” the SIU.

De Caire proceeds to explain the police service’s viewpoint on cases cited by the ombudsman.

The letter is worth reading.
