CPR and Naloxone Administration did not Contribute to Man’s Death in Brampton; SIU Terminates Investigation

In Police Blotter



At approximately 12:30 a.m. on March 12, 2018, Peel Regional Police officers responded to a residence in the McLaughlin Road and Queen Street West area in response to a medical assistance call and possible overdose. Upon arrival, officers located a man who was motionless and not breathing. CPR was performed and Narcan nasal spray was administered. Paramedics arrived and took over performing CPR on the man. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful, and at 1:11 a.m., the man was pronounced dead.


Director Loparco said, “The only contact police had with the man involved performing CPR and administering Narcan nasal spray. While neither of these interventions was able to save the man’s life, they did not contribute to the man’s death. As such, I have terminated the investigation into this incident.”


The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
