Sorry, I thought I read under the police services act that the chief has no authority to suspend a deputy chief. I may be wrong.

And the Board voted to suspend Uday Jaswal. The Chief had no authority to suspend his deputy Chief. So far it seems that every suspension he’s handed out has been handled poorly.

To be fair, the cop you’re referring to about threatening tenants had been suspended prior to Sloly becoming Chief. I don’t disagree with everything else you’re saying. I believe transparency is what proves the police service is accountable to the public. I’m not sure what the policies are with other police services in Ontario, but this seems heavily out of the norm to hide policies from the public, the members of the Service, and the Board who is helmed by civilians.

That narrative has since been dropped. The charges include men and women, and none of the charges include mental health issues, otherwise their would have been more.

This isn’t the first time an officer has ended their lives while suspended in Ottawa. Something needs to be done to support these members more while suspended pending investigation. No matter anyone’s feelings regarding the police, this is a tragedy that shouldn’t have happened.

From u/censedfern Context is important and as usually lacking when it comes to Catherine and Shawn. OPH is largely funded by the province with the city covering between 20-30% of their budget. OPS is funded by the city tax base. If the city decided to pay more more to oph then what is agreed to, they are effectively letting the province off the hook for their end of the funding and I’m sure the province will happily take the opportunity for savings. The right course of action is the one proposed by the chair of oph, which is to ensure the OPHs added cost related to COVID are funded by the province thus freeing up cash for oph to do their other important work.

They’ll do anything to avoid acknowledging that the men and women working in OPS detest Sloly right now. I don’t think Sloly is an asshole, but he hasn’t been communicating his message well at all. It doesn’t help that the relationship between Sloly and the OPA is sour right now too. Tough times for OPS while they also have to deal with civilians complaining that they’re all racist and a mayor who wants to initiate a change in law that would prevent officers under investigation from being paid. Those cops aren’t allowed a second job while suspended, so not getting paid isn’t an option for those guys, or they’ll lose everything. I don’t know if people know that or not. If they’re found guilty, so be it. We have to assume innocent until that point though.

Who would hire a suspended cop who’s name has been smeared in the media? Cops aren’t allowed to defend themselves publicly, so everyone gets to make judgements without knowing what actually happened. Just look at how Montsion has been treated at different points in his trial. It changes every month based on what new information has come out from the ongoing court process.

Suspended without pay for non-criminal offences. Cops aren’t allowed to work a second job unless authorized by the service. So if an investigation takes years, how does that officer pay their mortgage? Do they get all their salary in a lump sum if found innocent?

NTA He’s incredibly immature and I’m glad your ex checked in on your dad. Just be careful though, him giving medical advice as a student may put him in hot water if your dad starts pressuring his doctors based on your ex’s advice. I’m sure he’s doing everything with the best intentions though. Your ex is jealous and incredibly immature. He’s the asshole. Doing things in order to hurt your spouse is the shittiest thing you can do. I’ve never posted here before and I don’t generally tell people what to do, but I think it would be wise to re-evaluate how you see your current relationship with your BF in the future based on how he’s treating you.

Hey there! I’m a cop that served in the army before that. I don’t believe I’m inflexible or have a ‘kill or be killed’ mentality. My time served overseas has helped me gain empathy for people who are suffering in poverty. I don’t hate anyone in Canada because I was shot at overseas. I don’t know why you have that perception about soldiers and cops, but I’m happy to talk about it and try to convince you to change your viewpoint.

Hey fam, Canadian cop here. Like other people have said below, humans are generally kind of shitty at telling liars apart. I basically go up to every person with a certain amount of knowledge already in my head if possible and verify a bunch of things. Example of a traffic stop: -Hey sir! I’m Constable Hewgiggle with Canada Police, I pulled you over today because your licence tags have expired. (If the driver is the registered owner, I know all of their previous registered addresses, their age, and if they’ve ever been encountered by us before. If they’ve been arrested before I look at the files quick to gather some more info, like if they’re a guy who has a history of Break and Enters, I looks around their vehicle while talking to them for new tools that appear days old, etc.) -I ask the driver for ownership, licence and insurance. I make small talk with them generally and if they appear nervous I put their mind at ease with a couple jokes or something else. I’m not a big guy (5’8), so I usually joke about them not having to be afraid of a guy who has short legs and can’t run, etc. I don’t leave them hanging, I candidly tell them about my roll and my responsibilities. I ask them if they’ve been ticketed or arrested before (I already know the answers). If they lie to me about either of them then it sets some minor bells off in my head, as it’s such a minor thing to lie about. I call them out on their lies and ask them why they’d lie to me, and then give them the dates they were either ticketed or arrested. Sometimes they seem to have genuinely forgotten those offences and other times they’re trying to hide something from me. -After that I decide based on the totality of the offence if it’s in the best interest of the public to give the driver a ticket. If the crime is just a minor traffic infraction then I give a written warning, especially if they have a good driving history or if I can assume the ticket would severely hurt them financially given their likely low level of income. I’m a firm believer that police don’t exist to punish, but to teach people lessons sometimes (epiphanies, not beatdowns), and give them perspective on how their actions are perceived by others. Tickets are an avenue to ensure that lesson is met as a financial penalty, but I don’t like taking that course of action because that money would normally go to the drivers kids for school lunches or towards gas to get to work. It basically comes down to experience and trusting your gut sometimes. If something feels off, I’ve always believed that you’ve subconscious observed something and just haven’t had the opportunity to consciously acknowledge it yet. Take the time and slow the investigation down, and take a more measured approach to what you’re doing and you’ll find out if people are lying to you. Ask for backup for another unbiased opinion if you feel like it. Sorry, got of the rails. Probably didn’t answer the question properly. Oh well.

Yeah, absolutely normal for no follow up, especially if we weren’t able to get the driver....or if the driver wasn’t actually drunk, and these was some other reason they were driving like that. If there was a follow up then it would be to get a witness statement from you due to us catching an impaired driver, unfortunately that likely wasn’t the case. You can always phone in and do an ATIA request (access time information). If a file was created you’ll see what happened. Thanks for phoning it in and taking it seriously. Infant tell you how frustrating it is getting a call from someone 30 minutes after the fact about a possible impaired driver. A 30 minute time delay it’s a major hinderance and we never get the bad guys in those cases.

Its specifically designed to make my job easier and to catch liars. It allows people to think they're pulling the wool over my eyes if I act naive and enthusiastically nod to whatever they're telling me. I act ignorant and ask a ton of questions and let them hang themselves with their own lies later. Also, as a rule I gather as much information as i can about a person before speaking with them as I possibly can. This includes their personal information, relationship status, likes and dislikes, etc. I then introduce myself to the person, as they're generally the subject I'm there to deal with. I build report with them and pretend like I know nothing about them, I gradually ask questions feigning ignorance about their life and act enthusiastically to any/all information they're willing to tell me. If during that interaction I notice they're feeding me false information I make a mental note that the subject is important to them and likely sensitive. I dont touch that subject and build report with the truth they did tell me until they're ready to be honest. All of this is especially important if the person I'm dealing with is considering suicide or suffers from mental health issues. Or as a quick summary: Police work.

Hey OP, I can clarify some of your issues: If you didn't see a cop car it's because we were all tied up on other calls at the moment. We get (unfortunately) several of these kind of calls a day. If we can't immediatelly dispatch an officer to do a traffic stop or intercept him we usually send officers to the owners address. Calls like these tie up a massive amount of our resources, usually at least two cars to you and others to the owner address. These calls are treated with high priority, and just because you didn't see a response doesn't mean things weren't happening in the background. Dispatchers will tell drivers to stop following potential drunk drivers for safety reasons, as multiple cars involved increase the odds of a collision. Feel free to throw me a PM if you have questions. Ps. Grammer is poor due to me on a phone Pss. I saw someone saying there is poor communication between us and the OPP. That's not true, we work with them constantly, especially regarding drunk driver calls. Cheers!

You live in an apartment that has bedbugs and you’re a vegan. I’m not saying that being a vegan makes you a shitty person, but I’m sure the lack of meat protein makes you incorrigible. You’re trying to be edgy by acting like a punk. He was serving his country by guarding a memorial to our fallen soldiers, who regularly defend this country. He was ambushed and shot in the back, and no amount of CPR by the people who were right there could help him. I was part of the team that responded that day to parliament hill, evacuated our politicians and securing the prime minister in his house while They assessed if this was part of a coordinated attack. I was also at Cirillo’s funeral in Hamilton, protecting our members while the country and his family grieved for him. I saw his son say goodbye to his father that day. I can assure you that Cirillo is a hero, as is every other member of the Canadian Forces who dies while serving our country. I can also assure you that there were more people in Hamilton that day mourning his loss than will ever give a shit about you. Take care.

Sure, it’s fine if you don’t like the job. You don’t think it’s unreasonable that you want anyone who’s a cop to die? Edit: and if you feel that strongly that you can celebrate a cops death, I’m sure there are other professions you feel just as strongly about. What other deaths do you celebrate because of a choice in career? Crown Attorney’s? They prosecute all charges that police deal with. I’m sure you celebrate their deaths too?

I already mentioned that it was shrinking and hopefully will become irrelevant in the future. No clue who you are Garret, but I don’t run away from anything. This isn’t a serious forum by any means, so I’m not seriously invested in arguing my opinion with a bunch of strangers. That’s not ‘running away’, I simply have better things to do with my time. Take care. Edit: just took a quick look at your post history to see if you’re a troll. You commented 4 days ago that a cop ‘sounded like a pig’ when she was fighting against someone who was trying to murder her. I’ll save you the work of having to go through my history: I’m a cop too, so obviously I think you’re a loser now. Hopefully any future employer doesn’t go through your social media accounts, because if you post those kinds of comments often and widely, I don’t imagine you’ll have a bright future.

YTA It’s perfectly reasonable for him to be upset, given what’s written on it. Sure, it’s an inside joke with your girlfriends, but a totally different message is being sent out to every asshole at the club. That’s not even going into how trashy it is to wear something like that around. If his friends were at the club and saw you, can you imagine the grief he’d get? I’m not a prude, but if my girlfriend went out in public with a shirt that said ‘I suck cocks for breakfast’, I’d be pissed too. It would be different if it was a house party with friends only, who know and understand that it’s an inside joke.

Am cop. I was dispatched to a mental health call where an 18 yr old woman was considering suicide. I got there and found her upstairs in her bedroom at her parents house. She had been raped by her boyfriend last year. The evidence was strong and trial wasn’t scheduled for some time yet. (Trial was last week IRL) I had the girl talk to me. She had been having anxiety attacks and the stress from the crime committed against her had caused her to adopt a coping mechanism by becoming anorexic. I convinced her to come to the hospital with me. She was about 68lbs and 5’ft tall when I met her. I stayed with her at the hospital and talked to her about my experience with anxiety and PTSD from years overseas when I was serving in the army. We connected based on our mutual symptoms and that we both had an idea on what we were going through together. She’s the only person outside of friends or family that has ever received my personal cell number and we speak almost daily. We went to trial last week and the male plead guilty to all the charges. Sentencing is two months from now. I was subpoenaed by the crown attorney because the victim asked that I be there with her for emotional support. I held her hand the entire time we were there. Her mother took me aside after we left the courtroom and hugged me. She told me that her daughters life has taken drastic improvements. She is convinced that I saved her daughters life and that’s her calls me her son now. I know that her mother is in the final stages of lung cancer and has 8 months to live, and she won’t tell her daughter because she doesn’t want any attention taken away from her daughters psychological recovery. I’ve never felt as emotional on the job as I did when the mother told me about the positive changes my presence and friendship has had on her daughters life, and that’s she’s convinced her daughter would have killed herself if it wasn’t for me being there for her. Best compliment I’ve ever received.

Hey there! I don’t know anything about this incident whatsoever, but I did just watch the 10 second body cam footage. I just wanted to put my 2 cents in: The clicking after the light goes off sounds like the clicking of someone pressing a light switch multiple times. Is it possible the cops light malfunctioned? Also, I’ve seized multiple ‘air-gun’s’ from vehicles and houses. Many people I’ve dealt with use airsoft style pistols and take the orange tip off the end to make them look like a legit. It’s cheaper than buying a real gun on the streets. I’ve also seized air/spring rifles because some can fire at a higher velocity than my issues firearm, which qualifies them as a weapon in the Canadian Criminal Code. I never treat them lightly when dealing with them. That being said, I’m in no way accusing the man in the vehicle of being guilty of anything, I don’t know what happened other than watching the 10 second clip. I can’t speak to what the officer saw and I won’t judge him either.

ESH I get that you hate her fucking guts, and you yeah, it’s good that you left her. That being said, you’ve raised your son (that’s what he is, regardless of bloodline) for the last three years. That kids life is going to go to shit if you abandon him. She’ll hook up with some unreliable asshole because that’s the kind of person she is. She lucked out with you and lied to you. I think right now your emotions are running hot, and you need to take a step back and think about applying for sole custody or something during the separation. You are this kids father, and I’m sure you love him to the ends of the earth.

Thank you for the reply. It wasn’t fair of me to ask you to singularly solve our violent youth problems within the city. I won’t lie, my knuckles tightened at the ‘Donuts’ quip, but I understand where you’re coming from now. For issues like youth violence, police are only part of the solution, and usually only present late after problems have already manifested themselves within the youths lifestyle. You mentioned that myself or other may be OPS members, and I am. I care deeply for the city and its citizens. I am always open to suggestions on how we as a city can improve the lives of our youth and intercept negative lifestyle choices before they get out of hand. I’m not a youth and I did not grow up in Ottawa, so I need the perspective of others to allow me to adjust my mindset to those youths in crisis. They’re struggles are their own, but I can’t help if I don’t understand. Thanks for the long feedback, it’s appreciated.

What would you have the police do? Proactive programs exist for youth. Police officers regularly attend schools as resource officers to help at risk youth. When kids get in trouble, there are referral programs in place in lieu of charges in order to change their mindset. I’m asking seriously, what do you think should be done to address the issue?

That’s cool if that’s you’re opinion. The majority of the members appear to think otherwise, and their opinion is what really takes precedence considering he’s their representative.

That’s for the union members to decide. They seem to have faith in Skof for the time being.

He doesn’t have access to resources. He’s been suspended as a police officer and loses all access to police resources, including access to police buildings. The reason he is suing is because he’s unable to do his job as president of the police association by being denied access to public board meetings, which no suspended officer has ever been denied before.

You’re nitpicking specific detail from the news and not looking at the full picture. It was referred to the other service by the Chief.

I give him the benefit of a doubt the same as I do every single person I deal with who has charges laid against them. The reason he’s suing is because he’s been prevented from attending any public board meetings, which stops him from representing OPS members at those meetings. Skof was suspended as a police officer until the charges are dealt with, but maintains his position as the president of the OPA. Being unable to represent members at public board meeting stops him from being able to do his job as president. There is a long and public feud between the current Chief and Skof, which has caused many people to believe that how he’s being treated is personal.

Even if it’s association funds, that I pay into, being used to fight for the right to attend public meetings in order to properly represent OPS frontline members - That’s fine with me. It’s a worthy cause. I’m not sure what you have against Skof.

Well I’d assuming that suing him would be like every other civil suit, and would not come from the members pockets. It’s not mentioned in the article.

I’m glad Skof is fighting back. He has the support of the frontline with him.

He’s got a firm grip on it though.
