Police panel defers decision
on public inquiry

The Ontario Police Commission wants to gather further information before deciding whether a public inquiry should be held into how Metro police investigated an escort service operated by a former officer.

Constable Gordon Junger resigned from the force March 1, one day after drug-possession charges were withdrawn in court and after he worked out a deal with internal affairs officials who investigated the sex-for-pay operation.

In mid-April, the Ontario Police Commission was asked to give its preliminary view on how the original investigation was handled, to probe allegations that two other officers also were involved, and to decide whether a wider public inquiry was needed.

The six member commission began discussions of the issueon Friday, but put off a final decision until May 23.
