Peel Police Officer Arrested Again Following Dispute Just Outside of Mississauga

It appears that a Peel police officer was arrested twice in a seven-day period for the same crime.

On Oct. 29, Peel police announced that an officer was facing criminal charges after being arrested and charged with one count of breach of recognizance (violating the terms of his bail conditions).

On Nov. 4, Peel Regional Police investigators arrested Const. Douglas Poirier and charged him with one count of breach of recognizance in relation to the previous incident.

According to police, Const. Poirier is currently suspended as a result of a domestic assault incident. Const. Poirier was arrested last week after breaching the conditions of his bail by engaging in an argument with a woman in a Brampton parking lot. After the Oct. 28 arrest, he was released on an additional recognizance.

Now, it appears he has breached it again.

“We take situations like these very seriously and investigators from our Professional Standards Bureau are investigating this incident,” says Chief Jennifer Evans.

Const. Poirier will be held for another bail hearing tomorrow.
