The safety of staff and students is paramount in Grand Erie.
On February 17, 2016, the Brantford Police Service was contacted by staff at James Hillier School in Brantford to report a hidden camera was found in an employee washroom.
The Brantford Police Service seized the camera and charged an individual with one count of adult voyeurism. The staff member is the Vice-Principal at St. George German School with additional responsibilities at Burford District Elementary School.
Police have inspected the schools involved. We believe this is an isolated incident.
A warrant is being issued to access the seized camera’s digital images. Police believe there may be more victims and are continuing their investigation. The Brantford Police Service will work together with the Grand Erie District School
Board to identify others who may be impacted and to ensure support is available.
The individual will not be at work. A temporary Vice-Principal will be assigned to the two schools.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Detective Balbir Singh of the Brantford Police Service at 519-756-0113 ext. 3337.
