Despite Toronto police officers being found guilty of crimes, few are ever actually fired.
The CBC reports a quarter of the disciplinary hearings held for Toronto police officers in the last decade involved an officer guilty of crimes, including impaired driving and assault.
But nearly all of the officers kept their jobs, despite convictions.
The CBC reports in the last 10 years, 66 officers appeared before the tribunal after being convicted of a crime — of those, only three were fired.
Of the 63 officers not fired, punishments ranged from forfeiting days or weeks off, to a temporary demotion.
Former police services board chair, Alok Mukherjee, said this is extremely frustrating and adds there is no question that police officers must be held to a higher standard.
