Saskatoon officer used excessive force in arrest of Jordan Lafond after car crash: complaints investigator

Saskatchewan's Public Complaints Commission says a Saskatoon police officer used excessive force during the arrest of Jordan Lafond, an Indigenous man who was gravely injured at the end of a car chase in 2016 and died the following day.

But the Saskatoon Police Service won't say what internal steps it has taken to prevent something like that from happening again, citing an ongoing legal battle over the incident.

Lafond's mother, Charmaine Dreaver, filed a complaint against the Saskatoon Police Service with the Public Complaints Commission after his death. The provincial body investigates complaints about alleged police misconduct.
