Calgary police lay charges against their own after anti corruption probe

Woman alleged in 2014 that she was being harassed by people she believed were hired by her ex-husband


CALGARY – Current and former members of the Calgary Police Service are facing a bevy of charges after a two-year anti-corruption investigation.

Police say a woman came to them in August 2014 with allegations that she was being harassed by people she believed were hired by her former husband.

It’s alleged that Kenneth Carter hired former officer Stephen Walton, who was working in security, to follow his ex-wife and report on her activity.

Walton faces charges of criminal harassment, bribery of officers, improper storage of a firearm and perjury, while Carter is charged with criminal harassment and perjury.

Police say that Walton allegedly hired three members of the police service, who have also been charged.

The suspension status of two, Bryan Morton and Bradford McNish, are under review. A third, Anthony Braile, was dismissed and relieved of duty without pay on an unrelated matter earlier this year.

Walton’s wife, Heather, a former civilian member of the police service, has also been charged.

Deputy police chief Ray Robitaille said it’s hard on the police service when members are facing criminal charges.

“It’s a sense of betrayal that officers feel,” he said. “They uphold the public’s trust at the highest level and whenever that’s eroded, it feels personal.”

Robitaille alleges the officers involved made hundreds of inquiries in police databases to gain private information about the woman.

“The database is monitored all the time, so you cannot access that database without leaving a fingerprint,” said Robitaille.

All of the accused have been released on bail, with the condition that they not communicate with the alleged victim.

The Professional Standards Section will investigate once the criminal process wraps up.


Calgary police lay charges against their own after anti corruption probe

    I believe most everyone by now knows this organization as; ” THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION ” without any doubt and by their own definitions. The only question for the public should be, when & how will this gang end??? Often referred to as Calgary’s “Goon Squad” and well known to always protect the nasty people of Calgary, for their own $interest$ and personal benefits. This CPS conduct is anything but new however, the proof itself, exposed with a failed CPS-Cover-Up is most definitely worth reporting! The facts of the case are common while the media leak itself not due to a devious internal team of spin-doctors eg; Cst.Brenda Brooks and her clients Cheryl L. Grant, Robert W.Calvert and the infamous douche Diann Castle & Asso. and that is from 1st hand experience (enough for a trilogy). There are some very wicked people lurking in that center and these individuals act as their personal Mafia, beyond a doubt! Let this again, act as a CAUTION to Calgarians as the CPS can not be trusted (situation is better off in Mexico). CONGRATULATIONS MACLEAN’S and the few Calgary citizens putting their own lives at risk exposing proof again. Our hearts are with you & watch your backs.

  2. cps is the most corrupted and incompetent in the world esp in catching banks identity thieves and robbers. Picking one bad apple in the entire basket is not going to help!

  3. cps should be made accountable to calgarians to stop sweeping beneath a rug officers misconducts and corruption

  4. cst ouellette aiding and abetting a devastating safety deposit box impersonating theft!!!
