A disciplinary hearing involving a suspended Hamilton police officer resumed today.
But, we'll never know why Inspector David Doel was suspended and charged with 14 counts of misconduct under the disciplinary Police Services Act.
Retired OPP superintendent Robert Fitches made that ruling to protect a female complainant.
Her lawyer argued she would suffer professional and personal harm if details of an allegedly intimate relationship with Doel became public.
Doel has been suspended for the last three years, with pay, while he faces the charges.
Doel is charged with allegedly having sex on duty, having pornography on his work computer and using police cameras to spy on someone for personal reasons.
Other charges Doel faces under the Police Act include using the national criminal database for personal reasons, using police computers to get members’ personal information and obtaining access to telephone equipment under false pretences while on duty.
