  • Ottawa Police: What's Ottawa police patrol overhaul next week

    Next week, the Ottawa Police Service will overhaul how it deploys hundreds of front-line officers — some two thirds of the force.

    "I lived through the amalgamation in 1995," said Supt. Mark Ford of the period when the Ottawa, Gloucester and Nepean police forces came together.

    "When I talk to the officers, they say this is the biggest change we've seen in the organization since 1995."

    So, what does it all mean?

    Ottawa's 10 remaining community police officers are working

    The 10 remaining community police officers take on new assignments today, and bigger coverage areas, as the Ottawa Police Service carries out a long-planned redeployment that affects hundreds of officers.
    The community officers are the public face in the city's neighbourhoods, the officers that community groups come to know. They work out of their community policing centres, organize volunteers and attend events.

    Their numbers have been reduced from 15 to 10 in a move that caused concern among some community associations and city councillors, who feared losing relationships and attention from individual officers.

      Woman critically injured during Gatineau police arrest, investigation underway

      Quebec's police watchdog has been called in to investigate after a 34-year-old woman was critically injured during an arrest by Gatineau police on Tuesday.

      Gatineau police say officers received a noise complaint regarding an apartment at 24 Charles-Albanel Rd. in the area of Mont-Bleu Boulevard at 6:14 p.m. Tuesday.

      In a statement, Quebec's Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes, or BEI, says officers entered the apartment by forcing open the door and then "faced an agitated woman who was delirious and hit her head."

          How Ottawa police interrogated murder suspect Devontay Hackett


          CBC News has obtained nearly an hour's worth of interrogation footage in which Ottawa police try to get Devontay Hackett to open up about the 2014 prom night stabbing death of 18-year-old Brandon Volpi.

          Now 21, Hackett was also 18 when police arrested him in Toronto in 2014, more than a month after Volpi was fatally stabbed outside Les Suites Hotel on Besserer Street at an after-prom party.

          Hackett has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

          His trial is currently underway.

            Ottawa police arrest 12 in suspected fake drug ring


            Twelve people have been arrested after drug officers busted a ring suspected of distributing fake pills laced with fentanyl, police say.

            Seven men and five women were charged after police executed search warrants at various locations around the city — including a single family home, two townhouses, two apartments and a storage locker — the Ottawa Police Service said Thursday.

            Officers seized fentanyl powder, cocaine, methamphetamine and counterfeit pills believed to be laced with fentanyl. The pills will undergo an analysis from Health Canada to confirm the presence of the powerful opioid, police said.

              Ottawa residents pack meeting for rare opportunity to question SIU


              The Special Investigations Unit usually stays out of the spotlight, conducting its investigations away from the public eye.

              But on Wednesday night Ontario's police watchdog made an exception, accepting an invitation from COMPAC — the Community and Police Action Committee — to speak publicly in Ottawa about the SIU's often controversial work.

              If the three SIU members who attended the event had prepared themselves for a lot of tough questions, especially about their investigation into the death.

                'This is a liability': Police should get reinforced glove training, neuroscientist says


                A neuroscience specialist who studied the same gloves that are central to criminal charges against an Ottawa police officer in the death of Abdirahman Abdi believes they're "a liability" for police, and should require special training before officers are allowed to use them.

                CBC News bought a pair of the same reinforced gloves and showed them to Matthew Holahan, a neuroscience professor at Carleton University who researches memory, addiction and concussion.

                    RCMP, CSIS launch investigations into phone spying on Parliament Hill after CBC story

                    Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says the RCMP and CSIS have launched investigations in response to a CBC News/Radio-Canada report, which revealed that someone is using devices that track and spy on cellphones in the area around Parliament Hill.

                    "Obviously we are very anxious to determine who lies at the source of this activity and that's why both CSIS and the RCMP are investigating," Goodale said.

                    "We want to make sure that we get to the bottom of this and find out the facts and the RCMP and CSIS are in the best position to do that."

                      SIU does not publicize all its investigations into police


                      Ontario's civilian police watchdog didn't alert the public in the majority of cases it opened involving the Ottawa Police Service over the last year, including four allegations of sexual assault, CBC News has learned.

                      According to information obtained by CBC News under the Freedom of Information Act, since Jan. 1, 2016, the Special Investigations Unit opened 14 investigations involving the Ottawa Police Service but only sent out media releases in five cases.
