According to a report in the CTV NEWS, Terry McCaffrey was charged one count of sexual assault on Wednesday by the Ontario Provincial Police.

“The suspension stems from Chief McCaffrey being charged with one count of sexual assault,” Sue-Ann Oshkabewisens, president of the Wikwemikong Tribal Police Service Board, said in a news release Thursday. “The suspension will remain in effect until the final disposition of the charges against him.”

The alleged incident supposedly took place in 2019. The investigation began in 2020. The board has suspended Police Chief Terry McCaffrey, 44, with pay, effective Jan. 27.

“As always, the board remains committed to ensuring that the service provides safe and effective policing to the people of Wiikemkoong Unceded Territory,” the release said.

“Due to the fact that this matter is now before the courts, the board will not be making any further comment at this time.”
