Assault charges against a Saguenay police officer

Assault charges against a Saguenay police officer

UPDATE DAY

Cindy Letiecq, a police officer from Saguenay, is facing assault charges following an altercation that occurred on March 31 at a restaurant-bar in Chicoutimi.

The Saguenay Police Department has confirmed that on August 22, two charges were laid against one of its police officers who was off duty on the evening of the alleged offences. </p >

“Charges are under section 266(b) of the Criminal Code for engaging in assault,” read a statement released this afternoon.

Suspended on half pay

The police had been made aware of the case the next day, but it was not until a few days later that a complaint was officially filed filed.

The police officer was therefore suspended on April 8 with pay for the duration of the investigation.

Since the indictment by the Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DPCP), the agent has been suspended on half pay as provided for in the collective agreement with the employer.

Misconduct

For the past two years, the Saguenay Police Department has repeatedly made headlines for the wrong reasons.

Remember that police officers have been suspended after gathering illegally at Valionouët last February, when sanitary measures prohibited it.

Six months earlier, a party involving police officers from the organization degenerated, in a campsite of Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury. However, no charges were brought by the DPCP in this story.
