Victoria, BC – A VicPD officer has been suspended during the course of an investigation into a complaint of misconduct.
Earlier this year, a misconduct complaint was made about a VicPD officer. Upon receiving the complaint, the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC) assigned the Vancouver Police Department to investigate.
This week, the Vancouver Police Department Discipline Authority received new information about this complaint and has advised us that this officer will be suspended effective immediately.
The Victoria Police Department takes allegations of misconduct seriously and fully supports the investigative process and this decision; we are accountable to the citizens and communities we serve. We continue to support this investigation and further details cannot be shared at this time.
