A Message From Chief Duraiappah

Posted On Monday June 22, 2020

I offer my heartfelt condolences to the family of Ejaz Ahmed Choudry, on his death due to a critical incident on June 20, 2020.

As the investigation into this tragic incident moves forward, you have my assurance on the full cooperation of Peel Regional Police with the processes and procedures of the Special Investigations Unit.

We believe in collaboration with stakeholders, partners and communities to work for public policies that will restore the mental health system so that those with mental health concerns, receive the care that they deservedly need.

Loss of life such as Mr. Choudry’s and those before him, lead to deep impact that is felt and shared by the responding officers, and all employees of Peel Police who work diligently to serve and keep the public safe in our communities.

I have been in consultation with our Muslim Advisory Committee, and will be consulting other stakeholders in the community and experts in the field of mental health, to do all that is necessary to support those experiencing mental health distress.

I ask for calm and patience as we sketch our path forward and as the investigations unfold what transpired.
