Regina police officer given absolute discharge on alleged domestic assault
A Regina police officer was given an absolute discharge from the courts, relating to an alleged domestic dispute that led to a number of charges.
Darcy Dreaver, 37, was before a judge this week. The discharge means he receives no sentence or conditions relating to the case, although he does have to pay a fine.
Charges of uttering threats and mischief were dropped by the Crown prosecutor.
Dreaver was suspended with pay when the case arose and remains suspended. Police say he is still an employee and the next process for Dreaver, a seven-year veteran of the force, is an administrative review to determine his fitness for duty.
It is the general practice of police to wait until the courts have dealt with a matter before launching their review.
The case stems from a call to police to a home in Regina's Cathedral neighbourhood in December of 2012.
