Manitoba’s police watchdog will not be laying charges against officers after a pair of investigations.
Back in June, an RCMP officer in Spruce Woods was accused of beating a child between 2010 and 2015.
And in July a suspected drunk driver in Anola collapsed after requesting to take a roadside screening test. That person later died.
In both cases the Independent Investigation Unit found insufficient evidence to lay charges.
The IIU has also launched a new investigation after a Sandy Bay Ojibway man was cut on the forehead at some point during his time in custody.
They say he surrendered without incident on April 2, was taken to the Sandy Bay detachment of the Dakota Ojibway Police Service for 11 hours and then taken to RCMP cells in Portage la Prairie.
He suffered a laceration and bleeding to his forehead, and was taken to hospital in Portage April 4.
The IIU investigates all serious incidents involving police officers in Manitoba, whether occurring on- or off-duty.
