Clearwater RCMP have confirmed that the person in charge of the detachment’s traffic services section, Cpl. Bart Doerr, has been assigned to administrative duties following a complaint from his wife.
Cst. Sadie Doerr, who is not a member of the detachment and who is on extended maternity leave, complained that she feared she might be harmed by her husband.
The complaints are based on incidents that occurred in Clearwater, Golden and Kamloops between June and October of last year.
None of the allegations have been proven. The corporal is to appear in court later this month. His gun, pepper spray and baton have been seized.
The RCMP are conducting a separate code of conduct investigation.
