A 15 year veteran of Peel Regional Police has been charged with assault.
Sergeant Jeff Jones is facing the charge, following an investigation launched by Chief Jennifer Evans in December of 2015 in the wake of the unspecified incident.
A statement issued by Peel Regional Police on Thursday says that Evans is ”committed to holding officers accountable for their actions in order to maintain the trust that the community places in the Peel Regional Police.”
Jones has been suspended with pay since the investigation began.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, April 13th.
