In coming days, four city police officers are scheduled to appear either in court or before disciplinary hearings to answer various allegations of misconduct.
Sgt. Rohan Beebakhee’s court case into accusations of sexual assault opens Monday, April 21, while police act disciplinary hearings will run on Wednesday, April 23 for two patrol division officers charged with discreditable conduct, and again on Monday, May 5 for another patrol division officer who faces charges of deceit and insubordination, among others.
At the scheduled April 23 hearing, two Ottawa police officers are facing disciplinary charges following an internal investigation into the handling of evidence. One of the officers is charged under the province’s Police Services Act with deceit and discreditable conduct, while the second is charged with discreditable conduct and neglect of duty. All charges stem from the same incident.
And, at the May 5 hearing, a patrol officer will face four counts of neglect of duty, two counts of breach of confidence, two counts of insubordination, two counts of deceit and one count of discreditable conduct in connection to allegations that the officer failed to comply with several Ottawa Police Service policies.
