Joseph Martino, Director of the Special Investigations Unit, has found no reasonable grounds to believe that a Brantford Police Service officer committed a criminal offence in connection with serious injuries suffered by a 23-year-old woman after she jumped from a balcony in March.
On March 4, 2022, officers responded to an apartment in Brantford after receiving a 911 call with concerns about the woman’s wellbeing. Officers knocked on her door and called out when she jumped. The woman was transported to hospital in an ambulance. She was diagnosed with multiple fractures and other internal injuries.
Director Martino found no reasonable grounds to believe that the subject official transgressed the limits of care prescribed by the criminal law, leaving no basis for proceeding with criminal charges in this case. The file has been closed.
