The Saskatoon police department has dismissed a member of the service from duty following incidents that happened while at work resulting in multiple charges being issued against him.
Chief Troy Cooper says Constable Jarrett Gelowitz was relieved of his duties on Friday after being charged of aggravated assault and common assault stemming from these incidents.
Gelowitz will be in court September 13 to answer to the charges.
In January of 2017, a man was arrested after a foot pursuit in which some minor injuries were sustained. A review of that incident resulted in a common assault charge being issued against Gelowitz.
The aggravated assault comes after an April 2017 incident where two men in a stolen vehicle evaded police. That ended when a spike belt was used. The two taken into custody suffered minor injuries, but an investigation into that incident started when one of the men’s injuries were more serious than first believed leading to another charge.
