Off-duty York Regional Police officer faces impaired driving charges

Officials say she is currently assigned to Uniform Patrol and has been suspended with pay

An off-duty York Regional Police officer faces impaired driving charges following an incident in Bradford West Gwillimbury.

On Saturday, just after 9 p.m., South Simcoe Police officers received a citizen-generated report of an impaired driver northbound on Yonge Street.

As a result, the 43-year-old woman was charged.

“This is very troubling considering the work that York Regional Police is doing to combat impaired driving,” said Chief of Police Jim MacSween. “We continue to remind our members of their responsibility to live the values of our organization, both on and off duty,”

The constable has been a member of York Regional Police since 2020.

Officials say she is currently assigned to Uniform Patrol and has been suspended with pay.

“York Regional Police is committed to transparency and is accountable to our community,” said MacSween. “When a member is charged with a criminal offence, that information is released to our community as a part of that commitment.”
