Toronto cop gets three-month demotion for firing at and missing man who had back turned

A Toronto police officer displayed a “lack of judgment” when she fired her gun at an unarmed man in a parking lot in March 2017, and will be demoted for three months, a police tribunal adjudicator has ruled.

The bullet never struck the man, and no criminal charges were ever laid in the case, which at the time was not covered under the mandate of Ontario’s police watchdog.

The penalty of a demotion, from first-class constable to second-class constable, was jointly proposed by the prosecuting officer and defence after Const. Anita Watton admitted last month that she did not follow Toronto police training standards and use-of-force policies.
