SIU accuses former Brampton officer in 50-year-old sexual assault investigation – The Canadian News

The Ontario police watchdog says a former Brampton officer was involved in an alleged sexual assault that dates back more than 50 years. The Special Investigations Unit says a person contacted the agency in November 2019 with a complaint against the former officer. The alleged incidents occurred in Brampton between 1967 and 1972, when Frank Kohler was a member of the Brampton Police. The department merged with Peel Regional Police in 1974, and Kohler later resigned. The SIU says Kohler has been charged with two counts of indecent assault and two counts of gross indecency, and is due to appear in court in Brampton on October 6.

GUNTER: Let’s put de-escalation before disbanding and defunding

What makes a lot of the “defund police” talk so misguided is that it is not police budgets that are the problem, it’s the way police are overtasked that needs to be changed.How does it make sense that the first responder we send to mental health calls is someone wearing 20 kgs of Kevlar, a utility belt, sidearm, ammunition, flashlight and nightstick?I’m not saying there aren’t plenty of officers who have the compassion and insight to deal effectively with wellness checks or disorderly-in-the-streets calls. Police can talk down the tension.But wouldn’t it be better to send a social worker, nurse or addictions counsellor, along with a police officer standing nearby in case things get out of hand?That doesn’t mean reducing police budgets, it means increasing social service budgets t...
