Over the long holiday weekend a photo appeared on social media where a child no more than 4 years old was photographed with what appeared to be a firearm. Since the picture was posted, quick police work led to the arrest of the child’s mother. An initial post by commander of the Police’s Professional Standards Branch, ACP Chester Williams stated that the mother would be charged with the offence of child endangerment. That post was updated to state that the matter has been referred to the Department of Human Services who are now investigating to decide the appropriate course of action to be taken against the mother. Willaims noted that the well-being of the child is paramount.
