Coquitlam RCMP response to Civil Claim

File # 2022-13835

The Coquitlam RCMP is aware of the Notice of Civil Claim and mindful of the ongoing court process.

In June of 2022, a member of the Coquitlam RCMP attended a residence to serve a violation ticket when they encountered what appeared to be an insecure premise. Eventually, our officers were able to make contact with the resident, who raised concerns about their presence. We believed that we had dealt with those concerns informally, however, the resident initiated a formal public complaint which is currently underway. This investigation will include a thorough review of the entirety of available documentation including radio transmissions and other related materials as well as the previous informal process undertaken to address any concerns.

As with any civil claim against the RCMP, the Department of Justice will review the claim and prepare a statement of defence for the RCMP which will then be issued through the courts. It would be inappropriate for us to provide any further comment at this time.
