A Manitoba First Nations Police Service officer has been charged following an investigation by the province’s police watchdog into alleged threats and criminal harassment.
Manitoba’s Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) began investigating after being notified of alleged threats being uttered by an on-duty police officer against an individual on Nov. 4, 2022, which had been reported to the RCMP.
During the course of the incident, the officer was alleged to have engaged in acts of uttering threats and criminal harassment between Oct. 1, 2019, and Nov. 4. Following the completion of the investigation, the civilian director determined that Criminal Code charges should be laid against the officer.
As a result of the investigation, a MFNPS Constable was released on an undertaking for Nov. 3 in Virden Provincial Court. He has been charged with one count of uttering threats and two counts of criminal harassment.
The IIU issued a news release on Jan. 31, advising it had launched an investigation into the incident.
