For Immediate Release: 18-Jul-2019 @ 2:30 PM
MRU #: PSB-R19-04 

An Edmonton Police Service (EPS) member was charged today, July 18, 2019, in relation to an incident that occurred in 2018.

Const. Samuel Sanson, a 12 year member with the EPS, was charged with one count of distribution of an intimate image pursuant to Sec. 162.1 of the Criminal Code of Canada. The charge stems from a non-work related incident that reportedly took place in Edmonton in September 2018. 

 

The constable is currently on leave.

 

The charges follow an in-depth investigation by the EPS Professional Standards Branch which was subsequently reviewed by Alberta Justice.

 

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