14. The Commissioner may designate, from among the Commissioner’s personnel, persons to act as investigators within a specialized investigation unit under the authority of the Associate Commissioner for Investigations.

The investigators of the unit are peace officers throughout Québec.
They must take the oaths set out in Schedules A and B to the Police Act (chapter P-13.1) before the Commissioner. The Commissioner, in exercising the functions of office, is authorized to administer, throughout Québec, the same oaths as a commissioner for oaths appointed under the Courts of Justice Act (chapter T-16).
