Winnipeg Police Service Member Charged

The Winnipeg Police Service Professional Standards Unit has been involved in a year-long investigation in relation to a member of the service.  

On September 14, 2016 investigators arrested and charged Constable Trent MILAN, 42 years old with a number of serious criminal charges.

MILAN, who is an 18 year veteran, has been charged with the following offences:

  • Criminal Breach of Trust (s. 336)
  • Breach of Trust Public Officer (s. 122)
  • Attempt Obstruct Justice
  • Theft Over $5000 (x2)
  • PGOBC Over $5000 (x2)

  • Possess for the Purpose (Meth)
  • Possess for the Purpose (MDMA)
  • Possess for the Purpose (Ecstasy)
  • Possess for the Purpose (Percocet x2)

MILAN was most recently assigned to General Patrol duties in the West District. The investigation into his conduct goes as far back as 2010 when he was assigned to the Street Crime Unit.

The internal investigation pertains to the conduct and actions of MILAN over an extended period of time and involves matters relating to the handling of property, drugs, and cash in multiple events.

It is also alleged that MILAN has shared police information with persons contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada.

Although this investigation is ongoing, it is crucial that we acknowledge this matter at this time in light of the seriousness of the charges that have led to MILAN'S arrest and his removal from active duty. 

MILAN was released on a Promise to Appear with an Undertaking. He has also been placed on Administrative Leave. In keeping with Winnipeg Police Regulations, MILAN'S employment status will be reviewed by the Chief of Police once the investigation has been completed.

The Director of the Independent Investigations Unit (IIU) was informed early on about the investigation. The IIU has been monitoring the investigation from the onset, and was briefed prior to MILAN's arrest and regarding the conditions of his release.

Constable Jason Michalyshen, Public Information Officer
Constable Rob Carver, Public Information Officer
