Toronto transit officers charged with obstruction of justice

Five TTC enforcement officers have been accused of skipping work and falsifying provincial-offence tickets against homeless people, allegations which have resulted in criminal charges and the loss of their jobs.

According to a Toronto Transit Commission release, the employees were fired after a four-month investigation that began in the fall and involved police.

maybe they were in a long line-up at timmy's, why should the public trust these public servant weasels?

Ross said the TTC employs 40 transit enforcement officers in total.

12.5% of the officers in question are likely crooks...any doubt that figure couldn't be extrapolated to police forces Canada wide?

Uh, yes? Plenty of doubt. Not saying better or worse, but there's no basis for extrapolation between them.

I am glad they did this. Now maybe the others will do their jobs. I am sure the replacements will.

Around here it would be much higher than 12.5%. There has been about 400 officers charged with something over the past few years here. Out of 850 or so. Although nothing like what those officers for the TTC were charged with.

Transit cops are just people, too...

If you figure 1 in 8 people are ass*oles (and that's an optimistic view) - that means 1 in 8 transit cops will be ass*oles... Difference is they have the ability to write tickets; and are supposed to (as peace officers) be better then the rest of us. We hope.

I do feel the 1 on 8 ratio probably would translate to other police services, and probably just about any other line of work, too... Some people just don't have the level of personal character that others do. Meh.

That's nothing, I'm surprised nobody posted this.

There has been an ongoing case for the last 15yrs about a batch of dirty cops on a Toronto drug squad (a buddy of mine who is in the restaurant business told me about these guys and their antics).

They were all found guilty of on attempting to obstruct justice. Schertzer’s charges (conspiracy to attempt to obstruct justice, attempt to obstruct justice, assault causing bodily harm, extortion, theft over $5,000) bring a guilty verdict only for attempting to obstruct justice.

What was the end result? 45 days of house arrest. Why?

All but one has retired from the force (and the one that didn't was suspended with pay, but now has been suspended without pay and faces Police Act charges.)

This story pissed me off and then when I read that these crooks are on the sunshine list I got really pissed off.

So the overtime drove them over the 100k mark, how much of that overtime was "worked" when nothing was happening what-so-ever. The real kicker here is what were they doing. I'd love to see that come public.

Why does TTC even need their own enforcement anyways? This should be a police job.

It was, then in '97 the TTC created their own 'police' force - which was dissolved again in '09... The "Transit Enforcement Officers" are basically leftovers from the TTC Special Constables, and enforce TTC bylaws only.

The TPS provides 'real' policing within the TTC system.

Just reading in the paper , the TTC may try to recover the wages paid out to these guys.
