    Uniformed members of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary facing criminal charge(s) should not be subsequently deprived of income merely as a consequence of becoming engaged in the criminal process.

    I’ve been to the police station a few time thoughout the years and i know from experience police mostly dont treat people like their innocent until proven guilty even after proven innocent so same treatment should go for them especially when their supposed to be role models for youth and everyone else for abiding by the law

    Mr. Bradshaw reports that the accused in this case, Constable Kelly, has been suspended from the force without pay, as a result of criminal charges being laid against him last year.

    Section 11(d) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that anyone charged with a criminal offence has the constitutional right ” to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a fair & public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal.”

    The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary’s policy to suspend a uniformed member without pay, where a criminal charge(s) has been laid against that member, is prima facie unfair. It deprives the accused police officer of his/her livelihood, placing an onerous financial burden on the police officer and his/her family.

    Uniformed members of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary facing criminal charge(s) should not be subsequently deprived of income merely as a consequence of becoming engaged in the criminal process.

    The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador must modify this patently unfair Royal Newfoundland Constabulary policy. It imposes severe monetary and financial sanctions on police officers facing unproven criminal charge(s); and is contrary to the aforementioned constitutional right to be presumed innocent of a criminal charge(s) until proven guilty.
