SIU investigating man's death after police administered naloxone
Peel police also delivered CPR to man in Brampton early Monday
Ontario's Special Investigation Unit is probing a man's death after he was administered the anti-overdose drug naloxone by police in Brampton early Monday morning.
Officers began CPR and administered naloxone to the man. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Push back against naloxone SIU investigations
Earlier this year, the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police's president said he was "concerned" about the SIU's position that police must advise the agency whenever a death occurs during police interaction, particularly if naloxone was administered or attempted.
The head of the SIU responded to OACP saying Ontario's chiefs of police must "immediately" notify their forces' civilian oversight body if an officer administers the anti-overdose drug naloxone in the line of duty.
The SIU is asking for those with information about the man's death to contact the lead investigator at 1-800-787-8529.
