Three Peel Region officers have been busted for colluding with the same tow truck driver, providing fake accident reports and tipping him to accidents using confidential information.
Forty-nine-year-old Wayne Isaacs is the Brampton-based tow truck driver at the center of the police misconduct. He even became friends with a veteran Peel police officer who provided several crash reports that never happened. This was all part of an insurance fraud scheme, that bilked almost a million dollars from insurance companies. In the past five years, roughly 350 officers from police services in the Greater Toronto Area and the Ontario Provincial Police have been disciplined for what their own services call “serious” misconduct.
Considering the special powers and trust given to police, should they automatically be terminated if they run afoul of the law?
