Military police watchdog probing whether investigators altered report, interfered in case​


Wave tops
  • military police officer, who appeared intoxicated, put her children in her car and allegedly attempted to drive them and herself home after leaving a restaurant.
  • complaints alleged the military police investigator's electronic report was altered without that person's knowledge or agreement
  • the unit commander and sergeant-major "repeatedly advised the investigator that charges would not be laid regarding the incident."
  • The incident was never reported to the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, which has jurisdiction
  • there was also no report made to the Office of Professional Standards of the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal.
  • another complaint was filed alleging there was interference by military police in a child welfare investigation involving the same military police officer involved in the March 10 incident.
  • allegations suggest military police leadership "went to considerable lengths to pressure and intimidate its members into cooperating with the alleged cover up."
  • Subordinate MP Unit members were directed to not report the incident and threatened those who did so with reprimands and/or being posted to an MP Unit in another region of the country.

To be fair to the CO and CSM, there's no way they could have expected anyone to make a big deal about this. We haven't been hammering ethics training and bystander training and "doing what's right" for the last couple years to members. We also haven't have a hockey bag full of officers and NCOs relieved of duty or charged for illegal or unethical behavior in the last year+

Speaking of which the story of the MP officer relieved of duty and sent home from Kuwait seems to have went into stealth mode eh?
