Canadian police commission chairman arrested for having cyber-relationship with U.S. girl

TABER, CANADA (BNO NEWS) -- The chairman of a Canadian police commission was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly having a cyber-relationship with a young girl in the United States, authorities said.

Curtis David Paradee, 42, has been charged with communicating via a computer with a person under 16 for the purpose of committing an offense, invite/counsel/incite a person under the age of 16 to touch, and accessing child pornography.

Paradee served as the Chairman of the police commission in Taber, a town in Alberta province, for the past four months and has been a member of the commission for more than five years. In connection to these duties, Paradee also serves with the Alberta Association of Police Governance in an executive capacity.

According to authorities, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alerted Canadian authorities of illegal activity in 2010, reporting that a young girl from the United States was allegedly in a cyber-relationship with Paradee using various social media. The relationship allegedly lasted from July 2010 to October 2010.

On Tuesday, a search warrant was executed at Paradee's residence where police seized several computers and computer-related hardware for forensic examination. It was not immediately known if these devices contained child pornography.

Paradee is expected to appear for a judicial hearing to set a court date.

This entry has to win the prize for the most out of context story for the year to date.

Taber Alberta is a small town of 7800 people.

There are 10 constables, 2 sergeants, 1 inspector and 1 chief with a municpal bylaw enforcement person thrown in for good measure.

7 people sit on the the police commission. They are responsible for budget issues and NOT police investigations. The police commmission is not a commission in terms of the EU or American model. It has no "police" powers.

Guess what kind of crime occurs in this rural backwater? Its lifted from the old Andy Griffith TV series;

"Lately, we have seen an influx of "Granny Caper" type incidents." (Telephoning the elderly residents and attempting to scam them out of money.)

Citizen public watch volunteers aka Alberta Citizens on patrol have interceded to stop some major crimes in the making such as;

- Observing a drunk cross the road and get in his car. They alerted the police who found the car and arrested the driver.
