The Ontario Provincial Police have decided to stop seconding officers to run security at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.

The decision comes on the heels of Toronto Police investigation findings that were released on Tuesday.

The investigation concluded that the secondment of former senior OPPofficer Michael Sharland to the position of vice-president of corporate security for the OLGC resulted in a conflict of interest.

However, the investigation found no evidence that OPP officers obstructed or interfered with any criminal investigation while on secondment to the OLGC.

"When I became aware of the secondment agreement with the OLGC, I took immediate action to end the agreement and requested an independent review of the matter by the Toronto Police Service," OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino, who ordered the investigation last April, said in a release on Tuesday.

Sharland, who was the second-highest paid officer in the province, was head of security in 2004 when the OLGC began to investigate a disproportionate number of insider wins by lottery retailers.

A report from Ontario's ombudsman that revealed lottery players have been defrauded out of tens of millions of dollars also showed Sharland sent an internal email in 2004 ordering lottery staff to stop any investigations into the allegations.

Sharland left the OLGC as vice-president of corporate security and surveillance in April, less than one month after he retired from the OPP as chief superintendent.

"The OPP places a great deal of value on public trust and confidence and I will do everything in my power to uphold that trust," Fantino said Tuesday.

"I am grateful to the Toronto Police Service for its detailed investigation of this complex matter and I am satisfied that the issues have been fully addressed."
