(KENORA, ON) – On December 6th, 2019, officers with the Treaty Three Police Service apprehended a female under the Mental Health Act and assisted in transporting her to the Lake of the Woods Hospital for a medical assessment.

While at the hospital the female obtained a weapon and began to injure herself . At this point officers made vaillant efforts to deescalate the situation, however, when the female ignored the officer’s directions a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) (A.K.A. Taser) was used to prevent the female from causing any further injury to herself and others.

  1. Thank goodness it was treaty police and not regular officers who tasered the woman or they would have been sued. Out of control pysch patients used to get a jab in the but with an antipyschotic medication years ago. and it calmed them right down. Today they are allowed to escalate to become combative, aggressive, a danger to themselves and others before they are managed. Society has become as sick as they are.
