WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s police watchdog has launched two separate investigations of members of the Brandon Police Service.
The first is examining whether or not a Brandon officer misled police during an investigation in 2015 over something that happened in a bar.
Winnipeg Police conducted a criminal investigation which led to charges, but they were eventually stayed last year.
But after a review done by Brandon Police over possible criminal conduct the Independent Investigation Unit decided the case needs another look.
The second investigation involves a statement provided by an officer following a collision that didn’t match up with what else was on record.
Last month, the unit was notified that an on-duty Brandon officer allegedly reversed a police car, hitting another vehicle.
The collision last month was captured by the car’s audio-video system.
