A Regina Police constable who received an absolute discharge on charges stemming from an alleged domestic dispute will be returning to work.
Darcy Dreaver, 37, was suspended with pay after the case arose last year.
Police said the case before the courts was concluded after the officer pleaded guilty to one assault charge and completed a domestic violence program. Other charges were stayed by the prosecutor. The officer did not receive a sentence or conditions, but he did have to pay a fine.
The case dates back to December 2012 when police received a call from a 34-year-old woman at a home in Regina's Cathedral neighbourhood.
Police noted that Dreaver, a seven-year veteran of the force, had also gone through an administrative review to determine his fitness for duty.
Dreaver will be back at work on Dec. 15.
He will on a form of probation for two years, which will limit his opportunities for promotion.
He must also abstain from alcohol and complete an assessment to determine if he has an alcohol addiction.
A previous version of the story stated the officer had been cleared of criminal wrongdoing, according to an announcement by the Regina Police. The police service revised their announcement to say the officer received an absolute discharge after pleading guilty to one charge of assault.Dec 19, 2013 5:25 PM CT
