Within the Protective Service of the Police of the Czech Republic, tasked with safeguarding constitutional officials and critical authorities, an alarming deviation from the norm has come to light. One officer, in clear violation of his job responsibilities, was engaged in illicit drug activities.

The General Inspectorate of Security Forces (GIBS) received credible information suggesting that the officer was allegedly trafficking cocaine. This revelation prompted an in-depth investigation into the matter, which led to the discovery of his involvement in the sale of cocaine through an acquaintance from the Ústí region.

According to the investigators, the implicated dealer allegedly purchased 128 grams of cocaine on three separate occasions between November 2021 and April of the following year. He then proceeded to distribute the drug in portions to various individuals or even provided some of it for free during this period. Shockingly, in one instance, the police officer was implicated in facilitating the sale and even consuming the illegal substance himself.

In April of last year, the police apprehended both individuals during a joint operation, wherein a search of the dealer’s residence yielded not only CZK 90,000 and EUR 7,800 in cash but also around five grams of a white crystalline substance suspected to be cocaine.

The gravity of their actions prompted the GIBS to initiate criminal proceedings against both the police officer and the civilian. The charges encompass illegal production, distribution, and handling of narcotic and psychotropic substances and poisons. Recently, in the first half of July this year, investigators proposed to the prosecutor that both individuals be indicted for their involvement in the drug trade.

The police officer’s alleged offense primarily pertains to drug possession and sales, which could lead to a sentence ranging from one to five years in prison. In contrast, the civilian’s case involves a more extensive series of illegal acts, potentially attracting a more severe criminal penalty. The Prague City Prosecutor’s Office is currently evaluating the evidence and is expected to decide on possible charges in the coming weeks.
