NEWS RELEASE
YORK REGIONAL POLICE
*************************
This past week, 18 impaired drivers were removed from York Region roads, adding to the more than 100 impaired-related criminal charges laid already this year.

Unfortunately, we are also aware the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) charged one of our members with an impaired-related criminal offence on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, while the member was off duty.

“This is very troubling considering the work that York Regional Police is doing to combat impaired driving,” said Chief Eric Jolliffe. “We are confirming the information the OPP has released, including the officer’s identity. As this is not a YRP incident, further queries regarding this investigation should be directed to the OPP.”

Const. Tina Teeter, 42, of the City of Barrie, has been a member of York Regional Police since August 2003. She has previously worked in Community Services and the Collision Reporting Centre. She is currently a Uniform Patrol Officer in No. 4 District. She has been placed on administrative duties.

“We are committed to the fight against impaired driving and we hold our members to the same, if not higher, standard than members of our community. We continue to remind our members of their responsibility to live the values of our organization, both on and off duty,” said Chief Jolliffe.

York Regional Police thanks members of the community for helping us stop and arrest impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1. We consider these incidents a life-threatening crime in progress and will continue to respond to these calls.

We are reminding drivers that York Regional Police conducts RIDE spot checks year-round and that our officers are always watching for suspected impaired drivers. We also continue to encourage citizens to call 9-1-1 if you spot a suspected impaired driver.

We’re not giving up.
