Police said they issued a safety notice to officers to inform them of the method of "firearm concealment" used in this incident.

Police Chief Mark Saunders said in a statement that the incident is under investigation to assess whether it is a "training or disciplinary matter."

“Our officers face risks every day in their jobs," Saunders said.

"In this case, a call for a suspected impaired driver resulted in multiple firearm-related charges against an individual who allegedly concealed the firearm during his arrest by police. The officers conducted a search of the accused and the gun was not detected."

Saunders said he's also ordered a full investigation into the leaking of the in-car camera video, saying it's a "clear break of protocol and procedure."

Mayor John Tory has also responded to the video, saying he is looking forward to seeing what recommendations come out of the investigation to rectify these types of situations.

"It’s a disconcerting story to think that somebody who is inside a police car or anywhere else, for that matter, has a gun, especially after they’ve been searched," Tory said.

"It’s a matter for the police to sort out as to how a search could happen and a gun could nonetheless remain in the custody of a suspect in a police car," he said, adding that the incident would have placed the officers and the public at risk.

The accused will appear at a Toronto court next month, and the investigation by the professional standards unit remains ongoing.
