EDMONTON — Five Edmonton police officers have been cleared of charges of police misconduct.
A disciplinary hearing into events dating back to February 2005 ended with one officer being reprimanded for failing to take notes.
Constables Elvin Toy, Kristopher Bombier, Tori Tagg, Shane Faulkner and Allan Russell stood accused of going beyond the line of duty in their dealings with a trio of complainants.
The officers had been accused of searching a home without a warrant.
They were also charged with abusing and threatening people.
The hearing concluded last month.
“All counts of disciplinary misconduct against (them) are dismissed as not proven,” Supt. Mark Logar said in his written decision.
“The evidence that did come out quite simply was not safe enough to support a finding adverse to the charged officers.”
