Mother files complaint against Saskatoon police after being refused breast pump


A Saskatoon mother has filed a complaint against the city's police following allegations of misconduct while in police custody.

Lillian Desjarlais, 21, said her treatment during her 75-hour stay at the Saskatoon Police Service detention facility could have potentially harmed her four-month-old baby and herself.


The breastfeeding mother was taken into custody early on Feb. 19 following a drunken physical altercation with her boyfriend. Desjarlais said she had called police and officers came to their residence and arrested both parents.
