A Niagara Regional Police officer has been suspended without pay after he was charged with two criminal firearms offences.
The service said it was tipped off in September 2022 following an unspecified “allegation” involving the officer, uniformed Cst. Adam Gorski.
Gorski is a 15-year veteran of Niagara Police, joining in 2008. He was on administrative leave at the time the allegation took place.
Niagara police then asked the Hamilton police to take over the investigation to “ensure there was no perceived conflict of interest.”
Police announced on Mar. 6 that Gorski had been charged with two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm. He was then released with conditions until a court appearance on Apr. 5.
After he was charged, as prescribed in the Police Services Act, Gorski was suspended with pay. Per the Ontario Sunshine list Gorski makes nearly $130,000 per year.
