WOODSTOCK - A Woodstock Police Constable who was facing charges of deceit, insubordination and discreditable conduct has quit the force. 

Wayne Sczepanski was suspended with pay back in March 2016 and officially retired from the force on November 19th and because he retired, he is now considered a civilian, so he will not face discipline from the Police Services Act and the situation is considered resolved. Chief Bill Renton tells Heart FM the matter is now closed.

"One he retires from the service, the police services act has no jurisdiction over civilians, so now that he is retired, the charges adjourned, which in this case would be akin to being withdrawn." 

According to a report in the Woodstock Sentinel Review, Sczepanski was paid $290,000 for the 32 months that he was suspended on the job.
