Police Officer BUSTED, Racks Up $28K In Overtime Watching Child Porn


Craig Wattier, 52, who had been on the force for 30 years for investigating sex crimes against children, was charged with five counts relating to fraud, possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.

According to investigations, Wattier accessed 750 files related to child sexual abuse material and sometimes claimed overtime for hours, as it was then later discovered that he spent watching these offending videos. The officer was not trained to do computer analysis and had no work that would require him to view these videos for whatever reason. Records show that the first time the videos were accessed was in May 2013, the first week Wattier became the administrative supervisor of the department.

A thorough investigation of all the tech crimes unit investigations under Wattier’s tenure was conducted by Peel police and an internal audit of the crime unit was also done and new system have been put in place to prevent this happening again.

Ontario Court Justice Katherine McLeod ruled him of charges of breach of trust for using his position as the tech crimes unit supervisor to access a special electronic evidence vault containing seized child pornography, and fraud for falsely claiming $28,000 in overtime, paid duty and concurrent payments from the police and the Criminal Intelligence Service of Ontario.

A conditional sentence of one year was given to Wattier and as well as community service. He stated that Wattier entered an early guilty plea but did not plead guilty to a child pornography-related charge. As a result he will not be put on the sex offender registry or subject to a mandatory minimum sentence. He was since then suspended with pay until he resigned from the Peel Regional Police Service on Nov. 30, 2016, is now also essentially unemployable.
