Only the police and military should have guns, they say, because some alleged sex offenders need badges and guns too, right?
Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Mike Dolderman, a 21-year veteran of the Wellington County detachment, was arrested on April 23, 2020 and charged with five counts of sexual assault. He will also face five counts of breach of trust.
He was immediately suspended from duty with pay according to Derek Rogers, media relations coordinator for OPP West Division, who cited the Police Services Act to defend the decision.
“The Police Services Act permits suspension without pay only if the officer is convicted of an offence and sentenced to a term of custody/imprisonment,” he said.
No further information will be released about the charges because of “evidentiary reasons.”
It will take time for the facts to come out. When they do, I’ll be waiting and writing about it all.
In the meantime, a little digging turned up this gem.
In 2017, Sergeant Mike Dolderman crashed his police cruiser into a parked car. He was given a traffic ticket for “failure to turn out to the left to avoid a collision.”
Brenda Dolderman was also arrested and charged with three counts of obstructing justice.
