Off-Duty NRPS Officer Charged with Firearm Offences

In September of 2022, the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) became aware of an allegation involving a Uniform Constable employed by the Service.  To ensure there was no perceived conflict of interest, the NRPS requested the Hamilton Police Service assume carriage of the investigation.

On Monday March 6th, 2023, Constable Adam Gorski was arrested and is charged with the following:

• Unauthorized Possession of Firearm (2 counts) – Contrary to Section 91(3) of the Criminal Code of Canada

Gorski was released from custody on a Form 10 Undertaking and is scheduled to attend court on April 4th, 2023, at the John Sopinka Courthouse, located at 45 Main Street East in the City of Hamilton.

Gorski has been a police officer with the NRPS for 15 years.  At the time of the alleged offences he was on administrative leave.  In accordance with the Police Services Act of Ontario, Gorski has been suspended with pay.
