TORONTO — Ottawa police say nine more officers are being investigated in a probe into allegations traffic police issued unsubstantiated warning tickets.

The investigation has already seen two officers suspended.

Warning tickets allow traffic enforcement officers to reinforce safety messages and record the activity of drivers who have violated the rules of the road.

Police say the allegation was that the officers were entering warnings into the Records Management System without evidence or the knowledge of the driver.

The Ottawa police professional standards section began the investigation last November and did an audit of warning tickets that had been issued.

Ottawa Police Chief Charles Bordeleau says the audit found evidence to warrant further investigation into the warnings issued by nine other officers.
