On February 4, 2021, Barrie Police were made aware of an incident involving Barrie Police Constable Jason Stamp. Concerned with the conduct of the officer, then-Barrie Police Chief Kimberley Greenwood promptly took action, and requested the assistance of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) for the purpose of ensuring an independent investigation. 

On April 29, 2021, the Ontario Provincial Police charged Constable Stamp with Assault and Assault with a Weapon. 

On January 27, 2023, Jason Stamp resigned from the Barrie Police Service and is no longer a serving police officer. Today, his criminal proceedings will be concluded.

 “Our officers are held to the highest standards of professionalism and conduct in carrying out their duties,” said Chief Rich Johnston. “We share the community’s concern when any police officer is involved in a situation that negatively impacts the public trust and thank everyone for their patience as this case made its way through the justice system.”
