Officer in Charge: Staff Inspector Gregory McLane
I would like to welcome you to the Toronto Police Service Homicide website. The website was developed to ensure it is both informative and accessible.
The information on the website is designed to encourage readers to provide information that may assist us in bringing our investigations to a successful conclusion. After 40 years of service, I am convinced that it only takes one small piece of information to solve an unsolved homicide and bring closure to a family devastated by these violent crimes. The families of murder victims must understand that a case is never closed until a verdict has been determined in court. The website is a public record of all unsolved murder investigations where no arrest warrant has been issued or an arrest has been made.
The Toronto Police Service needs the assistance of the community to combat all violent crime. The website is designed to inform and canvass the public for information that will assist us in solving our outstanding investigations. We know that this information exists within the community and we need to engage in open dialogue with those who have yet to come forward. Even a small piece of information, that may appear to be insignificant, may be of great benefit to my investigators.
Toronto Police Service Homicide is comprised of a very dedicated group of men and women who are extremely committed to conducting quality investigations, ensuring that those responsible are held accountable for their actions in a court of law. This diverse group of people, both police officers and civilian members, is very knowledgeable and dedicated to the cause, moving forward in their investigations with great compassion, dignity, diligence and professionalism. My investigators are committed to their task and truly believe: No greater honour will ever be bestowed on an officer, or profound duty imposed on them, than when they are entrusted with the investigation of the death of a human being.
I would urge all of you to browse our website. If you, or someone you know, has any information concerning any Homicide investigation, please contact our Homicide investigators by telephone at 416-808-7400, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also encourage people with information who wish to remain anonymous to contact Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477) with any information.
The website is a continuous work in progress, so please check it regularly for updated information. If you are a family member of a victim of a homicide and you have a photograph that is not on the website or a photograph that is a better representation of the likeness of your loved one, please contact the Homicide office and we will make arrangements to update the website with that information.
I am very proud of the men and women who work within Toronto Police Service Homicide. They will treat you with respect and ensure that your information is utilized in a manner that is consistent with your safety and security.
Let’s work together to ensure that the City of Toronto continues to be the safest place to live, work and play.
