Public hearing begins for Abbotsford Police officer

A public hearing for an Abbotsford Police officer who previously pleaded guilty to assaulting a shoplifting suspect begins today (Monday) at Robson Square provincial court in Vancouver.

The hearing, being held by the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner, is scheduled to run Feb. 18 to 21.

The proceedings will determine whether Const. Adam Page, 38, abused his authority during the assault and then lied in official statements made following the incident.

Depending on the findings, disciplinary action could be recommended.

The hearing was previously postponed to await the conclusion of Page's court case on his criminal assault charge.

He was sentenced last April to one year probation and a conditional discharge, meaning he will have no criminal record if he has met all his court-ordered conditions by the end of his probation.

Information presented in court indicated that Page pushed a handcuffed shoplifting suspect into a wall hard enough to leave a dent during an arrest on Sept. 20, 2009 at the London Drugs store in West Oaks mall.

Disciplinary action could include a reprimand, retraining, a demotion in rank or even dismissal.
