Officer charged with domestic assault to appear in court

The Ontario Provincial Police will not release details surrounding the identity of one of its officers charged in connection with a domestic dispute.

The officer was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and one count of threatening death, according to a release from the OPP’s Central Region office on Dec. 29.

The charges are the result of a complaint that stemmed from a number of domestic-related incidents that occurred within the region, according to the release.

Members of the OPP Central Region crime unit and the OPP Professional Standards Bureau investigated the incidents, which occurred in December.

The officer, who was off duty at the time of the incidents, has 13 years of service with the OPP and has been suspended from duty. He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Huntsville court on Feb. 2.

However, the name of the officer or where he is from will not be made public, according to Const. Peter Leon, the media relations officer for the OPP Central Region office.

He said that with all domestic incidents, the name of the charged person is not released in order to protect the identity of the victim.
