British Columbia’s Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner is looking at allegations that several Vancouver police officers tried to interfere in a car accident investigation.
It happened near the Metrotown mall in Burnaby around 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, when a northbound vehicle on Royal Oak Avenue turned left onto Kingsway where it was struck by another vehicle.
The driver, a Vancouver police officer, was being questioned by Burnaby RCMP officer when her colleagues allegedly got involved.
As many as a dozen Vancouver police officers, many of them high-ranking, are now under investigation, has learned.
Sources say that earlier in the day the officers had been attending an off-duty training course at the Odd Squad Productions building, hosted by an expert from the U.K.
Around midday, the officers went to Metrotown Mall to practice that training.
That’s when one officer allegedly made an illegal left-hand turn, crashing into another vehicle. Minutes later a Burnaby Mountie was on scene, along with the VPD members.
