The man in charge of B.C.’s civilian-led police watchdog is set to move on.
The government says Richard Rosenthal, the director of the Independent Investigations Office, will not seek re-appointment.
His current term is set to run out in January 2017.
Rosenthal was recruited from the United States to run the civilian-led oversight group, which opened in 2012.
The office itself has been under scrutiny.
About a year ago, former employees had complained about the work environment and high turnover.
The province says the search for a replacement will begin soon.
