Nice to see Police Forces working together, well except Torontos Police Force who do not like to hear bad news about their Bad Cops.
Montreal police raised a red flag about allegedly corrupt Toronto drug squad officers in 1997, but to no avail, newly obtained documents show.
The since disbanded drug squad was the subject of Canada's largest-ever police corruption probe after complaints from drug dealers eventually triggered an internal investigation by a special task force.
A 2004 Montreal police document, obtained by CBC News and the Toronto Star, reveals that the force also alerted Toronto police to troubles in late 1997 after they had a "suspicious" encounter with two drug squad officers who seemed singularly focused on securing the cash from a suspect's safety deposit box.
