The officer or officers who lost some papers with delicate information related to the recent bust of three Winnipeg Bandidos should have no fear of losing their jobs any time soon, says one of Winnipeg’s deputy police chiefs.

While dismissal is a possible penalty for discreditable conduct or neglect of duty — as was made very clear by another media outlet yesterday — Deputy Chief Menno Zacharias said the officer or officers involved have yet to even be charged with any wrongdoing, let alone convicted of it.

“The range of penalties is admonishment to dismissal, so you can’t say (dismissal) isn’t possible, but perhaps the issue of probability is another thing,” said Zacharias. “I simply can’t say what the penalty might be. Whether it’s a major issue or a minor issue there can’t be a predisposition of what the penalty might be until there is a charge and a hearing.”

Zacharias would not say how many officers are being investigated in relation to the possible slip-up.
