FOLLOWING a 15-month investigation conducted by the Peel Regional Police Professional Standards Bureau, Detective David Warren, a 27-year officer with Peel Regional Police, has been arrested and charged with one count of obstruct justice and one count of breach of trust by public officer. Warren was suspended with pay as per the current provisions of the Ontario Police Services Act.

Warren is scheduled to appear at the A. Grenville & William Davis Court House in Brampton on May 15.

Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans said she is committed to ensuring that allegations of misconduct are thoroughly investigated.

“We hold our employees to a higher standard and we expect them to be exemplary members of the community. These charges are of a serious nature and it is important for the community to know that these allegations do not reflect the good work being done each day by the 2,000 plus police officers within Peel Regional Police,” said Evans.

Officers are subject to the same laws as all other members of the public and are also subject to discipline under the Police Services Act.
