Adjudicator Pitfield, appointed by the OPCC this morning, has now ordered that Chief Elsner be suspended effective immediately. This order was made in spite of the fact that Chief Elsner has been on administrative leave since December of 2015. This order for suspension was brought to the attention of the Co-Chairs of the Victoria and Esquimalt Police Board approximately one hour ago. The Board is arranging to convene next week to discuss the implications of the order for suspension. All inquiries in respect of this order for suspension are properly directed to the OPCC.
