    Veteran RCMP officer with Sask. ties suspended after child-porn bust in Ont.

    London police launched a probe early last month of sharing of suspected child porn videos via a social media application, after a tip from the National Child Exploitation Crime Centre, police said last week.

    A 15-year member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with ties to Saskatchewan has been suspended from duty after being charged with possessing child pornography. Police in London, Ont. — where the officer was most recently serving — seized computers from a home and announced earlier this month that Christopher Cisecki, 41, was charged with unlawfully possessing and unlawfully making available child porn.

    Cisecki is a sergeant with the Mounties’ London-based Ontario division. RCMP Sgt. Lucie Lapointe said the force is aware of the charges against Cisecki, who has been suspended. “While these allegations, if proven true, are extremely unsettling, Canadians and our law enforcement partners can trust that our priority continues to be the integrity of the investigations and the safety and security of the public we serve,” Lapointe said by email.

    Lapointe would not provide details on where Cisecki was stationed prior to being in London. However, news reports place him as a sergeant at a detachment in Martensville in 2016 and 2017.

    London police launched a probe early last month of sharing of suspected child porn videos via a social media application, after a tip from the National Child Exploitation Crime Centre, police said last week.

    Cisecki was charged after investigators searched a home on Jan. 29, seizing computers and other electronic devices, police said. Cisecki is set to appear in court April 26, London police said.
