Watchdog outlines concerns with B.C. RCMP's missing persons, use of force procedures
February 17, 2017
The RCMP's civilian watchdog has found significant problems in how police in northern B.C. go about their duties, including poor documentation for public-drunkenness arrests and failure to follow procedures for investigations into missing persons.
The report – launched by the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC) in 2013 after allegations of excessive use of force, rape and mishandling of missing-persons' cases – did not find systemic misconduct by the RCMP.
