Two additional men arrested and charged with Child Pornography Charges as BPS Project DILEMMA continues
Project Dilemma was launched by the Brantford Police Service ICE Unit in October 2021, to address the increasing concern of social media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, etc., being utilized to distribute and possess child pornography images.
The RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Crime Centre is reporting up to five hundred new files a day, while Cybertip.ca, which is run by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, has seen a 120 per cent increase in reports of children being victimized online compared to pre-pandemic rates.
Through ongoing investigation, the Brantford Police Service ICE Unit have arrested one additional man from Brantford and one man from Etobicoke. Investigators would like to thank members of the Toronto Police Service ICE Unit for their assistance with the search and arrest in Etobicoke.
Investigators allege that the suspects utilized their social media accounts to send images and video to other users. This content included children, some as young a two-years old, being sexually assaulted.
To date, Project Dilemma has resulted in the following search warrants executed and charges laid:
- #21-43215 - January 31, 2022, at a residence on Marlborough Street
- #21-44328 - February 8, 2022, at a residence on Darling Street where a 22-year-old man from Brantford was arrested and charged with one count of possession of child pornography and one count of failure to comply with a judicial release order.
- #21-44087 - February 17, 2022, at a second residence located on Darling Street
- #21-50022 - February 24, 2022, at a residence on Tollgate Road where a 45-year-old man from Brantford was arrested and charged with one count of possession of child pornography
- 21-48849 – March 29, 2022, at a residence on William Street and at a residence in Etobicoke (Princeton Road), where a 19-year-old man from Etobicoke was arrested and charged with one count of possession of child pornography and one count of making child pornography available.
- 22 additional Court Orders
- Seizure of 48 electronic devices (cell phones, computers, and other devices)
QUOTE:"Investigators from the Brantford Police Services ICE Unit are dedicated to the fight to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation. Social media apps like Snapchat have increased access to youth and, when combined with the global reach and anonymity these online platforms provide possible offenders, the potential for abuse exists,” stated Brantford Police Service Inspector Kevin Reeder.
BACKGROUND:Project Dilemma was made possible by the Ministry of the Solicitor General and its continued funding through the Ontario provincial strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet.
The online exploitation of children continues to be a challenge for investigators due to its sheer volume, global reach, and anonymity. The Brantford Police Service, along with the Provincial Government, and our policing partners are committed to making a difference in our communities.
The Brantford Police Service supports this strategy and recognizes that images of children and child abuse placed on the internet lead to perpetual victimization.

Anyone with information relating to internet sexual crimes against children is urged to call the Brantford Police Service ICE Section at 519-756-7050 or, to provide information anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at https://www.crimestoppersbb.com/submit-a-tip/
On February 22, 2022, the Ontario Government announced they would be eliminating the fees for licence plates stickers. The Brantford Police Service have received many questions regarding the new information and the renewal of licence plates and/or stickers.
Drivers will no longer receive a licence plate sticker for passenger vehicles, light-duty trucks, motorcycles, and mopeds, but the law still states that you must renew your licence plate on a yearly basis.
Although the fee for the renewal of the licence plates has been eliminated, owners of motor vehicles are still required to renew their licence plates on a yearly basis. This renewal can be done online through the Service Ontario website. There is no charge for the renewal. To register your licence plates, you will require the plate number and the permit number from your motor vehicle ownership papers.
Once you complete your renewal online or in-person, law enforcement will be aware your licence plate has been renewed.
To renew your licence plate, you need the following:
- your licence plate number
- your vehicle permit number
- your insurance company name and policy number
- your odometer reading
- to pay any defaulted fines, tolls, or fees
- to pay for your renewal fees (if applicable)
- an emissions test, if you are renewing for a heavy-duty diesel vehicle (if applicable)
The Brantford Police Service understands there may be confusion surrounding these changes and are working to ensure this important information is shared with the public.
Officers with the BPS Traffic Unit will be conducting traffic stops during the month of April to educate the public on the new rules for the renewal of licence plates before enforcement of the legislation begins on May 1, 2022. Vehicles with licence plates that expired prior to the exemption in March 2020, as well as vehicles with temporary permits are still subject to enforcement.
For additional information regarding renewal of motor vehicle licence plates, please visit the Service Ontario website at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/renew-your-licence-plate
The Brantford Police Service makes educating the public in safe driving practices a road safety priority. An essential part of our job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Our enforcement and education initiatives focus on impaired driving, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and speeding. These behaviours endanger drivers, passengers, all road users, and pedestrians at risk of serious or fatal injury collisions.
BPS officers proactively patrol our city and implement various road safety enforcement initiatives throughout the year. Road safety is a shared responsibility, please do your part to help keep everyone safe.
