WRPS officer cleared of sex charges returns to work
Waterloo Regional Police headquarters is seen on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012.
The last legal hurdle facing Waterloo Regional Police Const. Jeremy Snyder has been cleared.
Snyder was charged with sexual assault in 2012 following an off-duty incident.
He was acquitted of that charge in January, and the last Police Act charge against him was dropped Tuesday.
His layer, Bernard Cummins, says the ordeal has been difficult for Snyder – who returned to work in February.
“The fact that we have closure and his reintegration back into the service is very meaningful for him,” Cummins tells CTV News.
Staff Sgt. Shaena Morris says the focus is now on reintegrating Snyder into the organization.
“It’s good for the officer and for the police service to move forward from this,” she says.
