On Sept. 4, 2018, an (VicPD) officer strapped her two children together using one seat belt in the front seat of a police van, then activated the siren and emergency lights while driving them to their elementary school. Several motorists pulled over to allow her through.
While the OPCC recommended verbal reprimand as discipline, the officer left the City of Victoria’s jurisdiction – for reasons not related to policing – without notifying her supervisor and while in the midst of an investigation.
Another VicPD officer faced a neglect of duty allegation for leaving his loaded duty pistol in a desk drawer in the Communications Centre of the Victoria Police Department for over a day until it was discovered by a civilian call taker. The officer was disciplined with advice on future conduct.
i don't understand the middle paragraph.
the opcc recommended a verbal reprimand but when the officer's supervisor tried to provide it the officer drove away and out of victoria? or was the driving away and out of victoria her going to pick up the kids to take them to school with siren blazing? while she was investigating something else?
