OTTAWA – The Ottawa Police Association president hopes an Ottawa officer charged with impaired driving can get back on the road soon.
"He's a very good officer. We're making sure he's OK right now," said OPA president Matt Skof, of Const. Luc Durocher.
"We're hoping to get him back on the road as soon as possible."
Durocher has been re-assigned to administrative duties after being charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle on Jan. 25 by Niagara Regional Police.
Durocher was off-duty at the time.
Durocher, a central division patrol officer, has been an Ottawa officer for two years but came from the Hamilton force.
The Ottawa police professional standards section is also investigating the incident, and Durocher could face charges under the Police Services Act.
Durocher is slated to appear in St. Catharines court on Feb. 22.
