The investigation began in the fall of 2010 when another RCMP officer reported loose change had gone missing from a workstation. This was reported to senior management and an internal investigation was immediately commenced.
“While the theft does not involve a lot of money, the fact is as police officers we’re in a position of trust, and any breach of that trust is taken very seriously.”
Cst. Derrick Holdenried, age 37, is currently suspended from duty.
He will be appearing in Vancouver Provincial Court, 222 Main Street, Vancouver, BC on February 14, 2011 at 2:00 pm. Holdenried also faces a separate internal Code of Conduct investigation.
