For Immediate Release:05-Feb-2018 @ 3:03 PM
MRU #:PSB-R18-01

An Edmonton Police Service officer was charged today (Monday, Feb. 5, 2018) in relation to an alleged incident which took place on March 25, 2017.

Const. Jason Bouwmeester, who was hired by the EPS in 2013, was charged with one count of assault.

 

The charge stems from an incident where the officer attempted to remove a community member from the Boyle Street Community Centre. The constable remains on active duty, in a non-patrol capacity.

 

The charge follows an in-depth investigation by the EPS Professional Standards Branch and consultation with the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service. 

 

As the matter is currently before the courts, the EPS is not able to provide further comment or information about the incident or investigation.
