A Peel Regional Police officer is facing a number of criminal charges. 

Police say that following a “lengthy investigation,” the service’s Internal Affairs Bureau arrested and charged Constable Daniel Young, a 13-year-member of the service.

He was arrested on June 9, 2021. 

Police say the accused was charged with two counts of breach of trust, unauthorized use of a computer and obstructing justice.   

“These charges are a result of a complaint received by Peel Regional Police Internal Affairs alleging the unauthorized release of confidential information,” police said in a news release. 

The accused is scheduled to appear in court on July 26, 2021. 

Once the criminal court proceedings have been completed, a Police Services Act investigation will follow.
