CSPD officer arrested on child porn charges

Shocking news out of the Colorado Springs Police Department as one of their own is now behind bars. It all started when the Air Force Office of Special Investigations told CSPD that Officer Josh Carrier was under investigation for buying child porn online.

CSPD investigated and on Wednesday evening they arrested 30 year old Josh Carrier, a CSPD patrol officer, on child porn charges "It appears that Carrier was in possession of child pornography photos." explains Sgt. Steve Noblitt with CSPD.

Police believe Carrier, a 7 year veteran of the force, bought the pictures on an illegal child porn website. But it's not the only contact he's had with children. "Carrier's role as a police officer has brought him in contact and put him in positions of influence over youth in the Colorado Springs area." explains Noblitt.

Officer Carrier was a coach in the Police Athletic League, a youth advisor in the CSPD Explorer Program and even a school resource officer at Horace Mann Middle School. News First 5 interviewed Officer Carrier back in October 2010 as the owner of the Mind Seizure Haunted House in Colorado Springs. "It's very disheartening. It's very discouraging. It is disappointing to our agency." says Noblitt. Officer Carrier has been places on indefinite administrative leave.
