Paramedic Supervisor arrested in theft investigation
  
A Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Paramedic Supervisor has been
charged by Toronto Police Service with theft and breach of trust following an
extensive police investigation.

The alleged thefts and breach of trust occurred during 2004 and 2005 when EMS
personnel were called to homes in the city’s east end for a variety of medical
emergencies.

Detectives from 54 Division arrested the supervisor this morning and executed a
search warrant at an EMS service district headquarters on Kingston Rd. The
supervisor has been placed on administrative leave with pay pending further
police and internal investigations.

"We are taking this matter extremely seriously. The public's trust is at the
heart of the care we provide, and I have the highest confidence in the City's
1,300 paramedics, dispatchers, and other staff who bring care to nearly 500
patients every day," said EMS Chief Bruce Farr. "We are co-operating fully with
Toronto Police in their investigation."
