In 2017, Senator Murray Sinclair was appointed by the Ontario Civilian Police Commission to look into the ability of the police board, who are the civilians appointed to oversee the local force, to address issues raised by Indigenous leaders. Due to failures by the police board to heal distrust between the Indigenous community and police force, Sinclair's report will recommend the local civilian oversight body be dismantled for one year and an administrator put in its place. The recommendation is that an administrator temporarily take over for the existing board until it can be overhauled with new members who will receive proper training.
