Dismay in Boylove Land: Toronto Detective Paul Krawczyk Honoured

Det. Paul Krawczyk and Const. Janelle Blackadar were named “officers of the year”
by the city’s board of trade on June 6, 2012.
Two of Toronto’s finest were named “officers of the year” for their work in breaking up an international child porn ring.  

Det. Paul Krawczyk and Const. Janelle Blackadar were honoured by the Toronto Board of Trade at a Wednesday night ceremony. 

“For the Toronto police services, it’s kind of like our Academy Awards,” deputy chief Peter Sloly told CityNews after presenting the officers with their awards.

“It’s all of our top cops and all of their amazing, brave deeds and their great public service efforts that are being recognized here. They’re the crème de la crème.”

The investigation, dubbed Project Sanctuary, began in November 2009. Krawczyk and Blackadar infiltrated a group of men that police say were trading child sexual-abuse images and videos online and, in some cases, creating images by abusing children themselves. 

The officers assumed over 20 identities and were eventually able to gain the trust of hundreds of users. Their work led to the arrest of 57 people and the rescue of 27 children. 

The investigation brought together 13 Canadian police forces, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a number of other security outfits worldwide.
