The Abbotsford Police Department’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit and Major Crime Unit are seeking individuals who may have been victimized by Michael Haire, an Abbotsford Vice Principal.

He is currently facing charges in relation to child pornography offences.

The ICE Unit launched an investigation in late July 2018.

A search warrant was obtained and executed at Haire’s home in Abbotsford, where computers, data storage devices and cell phones were seized.


An examination by the Abbotsford Police Department’s Digital Forensic Lab is currently underway and at this point has revealed thousands of images and videos depicting child pornography and child abuse.

“Our unit’s goal is to identify suspects who believe they are anonymous in cyberspace” stated Detective Keith Nugent, ICE Unit Investigator.
