(ONTARIO) โ€“ On Thursday September 6, 2018, as a result of an ongoing investigation, an officer from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), who currently holds the rank of Provincial Constable and is assigned to a Central Region detachment was arrested and charged with a criminal offence.


The offence occurred while off duty.

Due to the domestic nature of the investigation that was conducted by detectives from the Central Region Crime Unit, under the direction of the Central Region Professional Standards Bureau, the OPP will not be releasing any information regarding the specifics of the allegations or the name of the officer involved in order to protect the identity of the victim and to prevent any form of revictimization.

The officer involved in this incident has been a member of the OPP for six years and remains on active duty.

This investigation remains ongoing and further details will only be provided as the investigation permits.


We will keep you updated, as usual.

  1. Sounds like some bull manure.

    Whatโ€™s the point of telling us an OPP officer was charged, if you arenโ€™t going to tell us what the charge was?

    Thunder Bay has got to be the most corrupt and sneaky city I have ever come across; always hiding the truth.

    1. I understand your frustration with the push to hide facts in the news that happens in and around Thunder Bay, this was one of the main reasons I started this news website, to get as much information out as possible.

      This OPP officer is from an OPP detachment in southern Ontario, not from Thunder Bay. This is all the information I was able to obtain regarding the situation. I will, as I always do, update everyone should I find out any more.

  2. I find you column very interesting it is good to know about a lot of things that go down in and around our town. I know this officer was not from our territory but it is good to know that they are not getting away with anything either. They are not above the law and all people make mistakes and if the regular public gets published for their wrongs then so should the police. Nothing wrong with not publishing their name until everything goes to court and he is either found guilty or not. Why ruin a mans name until all the facts are out in the open as the saying goes you are innocent until proven guilty and I agree with that. Now that is just my opinion for what it is worth. Keep up the excellent work Pino Demasi.
