Police watchdog investigating after woman found unconscious in Pontiac

Quebec’s civilian police watchdog has launched an investigation after a 51-year-old woman who’d reportedly threatened suicide was found seriously injured in a Pontiac home after MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais Police tried to negotiate with her.

Police were called to the residence at 1:38 p.m. Tuesday by a call that the woman was intoxicated and talking about killing herself, the Office of Independent Investigations reported.

According to a preliminary report that’s still under investigation, responding officers set up a security perimeter and attempted to negotiate with the woman. When they entered the home at 3:40 p.m., they found her unconscious. She was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Eight investigators have been tasked to the probe with the help of two forensic identification technicians from the provincial police. They were on the scene until 2:35 a.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses are asked to visit bei.gouv.qc.ca to contact investigators.

The Office of Independent Investigations examines cases in which civilians are seriously injured or killed during a police operation or while detained.
