OPP officer faces breach of trust charges

Press release

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a Kenora OPP officer following a criminal investigation.

An investigation by the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch began in November 2021 after allegations were made in October 2021 regarding inappropriate behaviour by an off-duty police officer in relation to an adult person.

As a result of the investigation, a 50 year old constable from Kenora, was charged with Breach of Trust and Obtaining Sexual Services for Consideration.

The accused was released from custody and is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Kenora at a later date.

The officer has been a member of the OPP for 20 years and had been assigned to court services-related duties from the Kenora Detachment since 2015. He is currently on leave.
