Charges approved by Crown Counsel after independent NWPD investigation

New Westminster – After an incident involving members of the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority on August 10, 2011, the New Westminster Police Department was asked to assist the Office of the Police Complaints Commission with an independent investigation.

The NWPD conducted a thorough and independent investigation of the incident and following this investigation a report to Crown Counsel was submitted.  New Westminster Regional Crown has now approved charges.

As this matter is now before the courts, the NWPD is not able to provide additional information or discuss the matter further.
