Commissioner Evans Releases Public Portions of Barrett File

September 23, 2016

In keeping with my practice of transparency and accountability, I am releasing the public portions of the information relied upon by the internal affairs division when conducting their investigation into an incident that occurred on May 24, 2016. I encourage members of the public and media to examine the facts that are contained within.

When making difficult decisions it is my duty to carefully examine all the relevant facts of an incident and only then am I able to make an informed, fact based decision.  The public I serve and the officers I lead deserve no less.  I take my job and this responsibility very seriously. Understandably, there will be times that those decisions and conclusions will not be the most popular but I can assure you they will be thoughtful and factually supported.
