  • Police officer and a Surrey resident charged in a Vancouver Police investigation

A police officer has been charged with offences related to theft, breach of trust and drugs after an extensive investigation by Vancouver Police detectives. Constable Neil Logan, of the Vancouver Police Department, was charged with the offences on Monday, January 11, 2021.

“My team began a criminal investigation last May after concerns about Constable Logan’s on-duty conduct were identified,” says Inspector Mike Heard, Team Commander, Investigation Division, VPD. “Our investigation into that conduct revealed additional concerning behaviour and criminal activity by Mr. Logan.”

Crown counsel has approved two counts of theft, two counts of breach of trust, and one count of possession of a controlled substance against Logan related to on-duty conduct. An additional charge of theft and a charge of possession of a controlled substance were also approved, but not in relation to on-duty activity.

“I am deeply disappointed about what our investigation uncovered into Mr. Logan’s behaviour, but am pleased by the thorough and comprehensive work of our detectives,” says Laurence Rankin, Deputy Chief Constable, Investigation Division, VPD. “Police officers are held to a higher standard – as they should be – and need to be held accountable for their behaviour.”

During the investigation into Logan, police also began an investigation into one of his associates. As a result, 20-year-old Surrey resident Dilpreet Kooner has been charged with four offences related to drug trafficking.

Logan has been suspended by the VPD and is no longer an active member of the department.
