Woman’s Injuries in Picton Due in Part to Medical Condition; No Criminal Charges Warranted Against Police

Numéro du dossier: 17-PCI-249

Mississauga, ON (28 septembre 2018) ---
On September 9, 2017, paramedics requested that the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) attend a call with them in regards to treating a 54-year-old woman’s low blood sugar levels and her reported strange behavior. When officers and paramedics arrived at the apartment, the woman became violent and refused to be treated. The officers managed to gain control of the woman by taking her to the floor. She was then treated by the paramedics and transported to hospital. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against an OPP officer in relation to a serious injury sustained by the woman.
