SIU

Peel Regional Police Officer Charged

Case Number: 14-OCI-044

Mississauga (23 May, 2014) — The Director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), Tony Loparco, has reasonable grounds to believe that a Peel Regional Police (PRP) officer committed a criminal offence in relation to the injuries suffered by a 22-year-old man in February of this year. Director Loparco has caused a charge to be laid against the officer.

The charge relates to an exchange that occurred between the man and the officer at the intersection of Cliff Road and Mississauga Valley Blvd, in Mississauga.
As a result of the SIU investigation, PRP Constable Tomasz Laskowski is facing one charge of Assault Causing Bodily Harm, contrary to s. 267(b) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

The officer is required to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice at 7755 Hurontario Street, Brampton, on July 7, 2014.  The Justice Prosecutions branch of the Ministry of the Attorney General will have carriage of the prosecution.

As this matter is now before the courts, and in consideration of the fair trial interests of the charged officer and the community, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.

Kingston Police Service

Flare Nightclub Fire Deemed Suspicious

14-14217

 

Detectives from the Kingston Police Major Crime Unit and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office are jointly investigating the recent fire at Flare Nightclub and have deemed it to be suspicious.

 

On Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at approximately 8:30 p.m. smoke and flames became visible to members of the public. Kingston Fire & Rescue attended and Kingston Police assisted with scene security. The fire was eventually extinguished but the nightclub, located at 248 Ontario Street, sustained heavy damage and adjacent businesses also received smoke damage.

 

After an initial assessment of the property and its remains by Kingston Fire & Rescue inspectors and members of the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office, plus preliminary investigative measures by detectives, there is reason to believe the blaze was deliberately set. Kingston Police are assuming the lead in which is now an arson investigation, and will continue to work in conjunction with Kingston Fire & Rescue and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office.

 

While statements have been taken from some witnesses, police are still hoping to speak to members of the public who noticed any suspicious activity or took photographs or video of the nightclub just prior to catching fire. The timeframe would roughly be between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. on May 21.

 

Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Chris Gobeil at 613-549-4660 ext 6190 or via email at cgobeil@kpf.ca.
