MIDLAND - Ontario Provincial Police officials are still keeping mum about details after one of their own was charged with two counts of uttering threats.

Southern Georgian Bay OPP Const. Glen Hollett, a 10-year member of the OPP, was charged last week, not long after the alleged incident was brought to their attention, noted Const. Peter Leon.

Leon told The Mirror he was unable to get into any specifics about the alleged incident, or how it was brought to the department’s attention.

“We brought in detectives from within Central Region and they conducted the investigation,” he said, adding members of the Central Region Criminal Operations division were also brought in to investigate.

“It was not conducted by the Southern Georgian Bay detachment. It’s important for the public to recognize that when something like this happens, we have resources in the OPP we can call upon so we’re not relying on the detachment of origin to conduct the investigation.

Public trust, said Leon, is the “cornerstone of policing”, adding no matter the circumstances it’s important to the OPP to keep the public informed.

“Although we can’t say very much because of the ongoing status, we feel it’s important to let the public know an investigation has taken place, that has resulted in an arrest and criminal charges being laid …and that it’s continuing,” he said.

Leon acknowledged it can be difficult for officers when one of their own is charged.

“It’s certainly a difficult time. Police officers are human beings (but) when we make mistakes we have to be made accountable for our actions both on and off duty. At the end of the day, if an officer has a situation where a law has been broken we have an obligation to conduct an investigation in the same manner we would with anyone of the public.”

A Midland resident, who didn’t want her name used, met Const. Holland two years ago after he responded to an incident at her home. She described him as a “strong but caring” police officer.

“He was friendly but wanted to get down to business,” she said, adding she was shocked when she learned he’d been charged. “I couldn’t believe it. He cared about what was going on, who I was, my kid’s safety … it seemed like it was more than just a job for him.”

Hollett is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Barrie on May 13.

OPP officer makes first court appearance

MIDLAND – Southern Georgian Bay OPP Const. Glen Hollett faces a firearms-related charge in addition to two counts of uttering threats, a Barrie court heard Monday.

Hollett was charged with threatening in connection with an off-duty incident in March. A firearms-related charge was brought to the attention of the court by his lawyer, Leo Kinahan, who requested the two charges be meshed so they could be heard together.

Hollett, a 10-year member of the provincial force, was not in court Monday for his first appearance. His next court date is June 26, when the Crown is expected to disclose its case to the defence.

The case is being prosecuted by an assistant Crown attorney from York Region, which is outside of Hollett’s regular jurisdiction.

The OPP released no details surrounding the threatening charges in March. The firearms charge was first revealed during Monday’s brief court appearance. No details were discussed in open court.
