Default Copies of Police Reports

My ex was arrested twice last year for assault and breach of her peace bond. A third time when police were called after she had assaulted my daughter, but no arrest was made; just CAS intervention.

I want to get my hands on a copy of the police reports. How can I get them

freedom of information act.

the reports you get will be censored unless the person in question consents to their name being released.

You can get unredacted reports through motion in family court if you can succesfully argue for them.

They will give you all info pertaining to your daughter or yourself if you have joint custody. They will black out everything that has info on your ex. You may try going to the court office and getting the reports from the criminal case, I think you can do that as court files are public. With the police you will just file a freedom of info act to get it. Done it plenty of times.

You will need the date(s) name(s) of people involved.Go to the Police station in the district the incident occured, give them the information above and request the case number. You then send your request including case number, names, dates and a $5 cheque to the freedom of information act office.

In my case, the police officer wanted me to obtain the information so I could understand what happened when my ex took my kids out of school when they were supposed to be on the bus to stay with me. He was surprised I had to make a request through the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Anyway, I applied using the procedure outlined Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. F.31
What I received was basically blacked out (whited out would be more correct), and although I know my ex had lied to the police, I barely see any results of the investigation. What? I read the damn thing about 7 times and I'm still not sure why the can't disclose the information.

Although not as serious as lorlaman's, I believe I deserve to know what happened and I will probably appeal within the thirty day period, but first I need to seek out some advice.

Under the FOI you can also ask to have (whited out) copies of the Polic Officers not books. At least in Ontario.

Hope this helps.

You can get a solicitor to get them for you. You will get more information from the report they will give to a solicitor generally. If you make the request anything that may cause conflict they will take out. But, if a solicitor asks for it they generally get more information.

Good Luck!

Exactly. The F.O.I. - I think it took 2 weeks, had to be prepaid (about $15) - ie: $3 per page. It's proof of the occurrence but the info I rec'd was pretty edited, I thought.
