Calgary Police Investigates Its Own Officers For Harassment, Corruption

Two members have been suspended with pay.


Calgary city police say they are investigating two of their own for alleged corruption and breach of trust.

It comes following a year-long harassment investigation, which stemmed from a complaint filed more than a year ago about criminal harassment.

A woman claimed she was being harassed by some retired members who had started a private investigation company.

Police spokesman Kevin Brookwell said an investigation into the allegations was launched immediately.

He said two currently serving members are alleged to have accessed a police database system and provided that information to the private investigation company.

Brookwell added that they were suspended with pay and the privacy commissioner was notified.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team is observing the investigation.

Brookwell said some members could face internal discipline, ranging anywhere from counselling to dismissal.
