No charges approved in incident involving Port Moody police officer

THE BC Prosecution Service (BCPS) announced on Tuesday that no charges have been approved against a member of the Port Moody Police Department who was involved in the arrest of an individual on an outstanding warrant on September 15, 2021, in Port Moody. While attempting to avoid apprehension, the individual suffered serious injuries.
Because of the serious nature of the injuries, the incident was investigated by the Independent Investigations Office (IIO). Following the investigation, the Chief Civilian Director of the IIO determined that there were reasonable grounds to believe the officer may have committed offences and submitted a report to the BCPS.
In this case, the BCPS has concluded that the available evidence does not meet the BCPS’s charge assessment standard. The BCPS is not able to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the officer committed any offence in relation to the incident. As a result, no charges have been approved.
