Allan Filmer, who headed a public hearing into the incident, has ordered written reprimands be given to constables Ryan O’Neil and Brian Asmussen.

Kinloch was awarded $60,000 after a civil trial, though Victoria police and the City of Victoria appealed, eventually leading to an out-of-court settlement.
