A Delta police officer has been suspended with pay

This comes after an incident of a sexual nature with a fellow officer

Surrey RCMP are investigating

DELTA (NEWS 1130) — A Delta police officer has been suspended with pay following an incident involving a fellow officer.

Police say the allegations are of a sexual nature and happened when both officers were off-duty in December, but aren’t providing many details.

“This allegation is extremely concerning,” says Chief Neil Dubord of the Delta Police. “Police officers are – rightfully so – held to a higher standard both on- and off-duty. That is why I wanted to be as open as I could about the process that’s now underway. It is important that this allegation be investigated fully by an independent police department.”

Dubord adds the department will review and ensure all department policies are appropriate and all members understand them.

Surrey RCMP is looking into what’s been called a criminal investigation at the request of Dubord.
