An official public complaint has been launched against several police officers from the Whistler RCMP.

Officer in Charge of Sea to Sky RCMP Inspector Kara Triance, says she’s aware that the complaint is in regard to the officers alleged conduct during an interaction with a member of the public where the complainant’s cell phone was seized.

Triance says that in her preliminary review of the file several components in the public complaint report and the text of the officers’ report were unclear and warrants further review.

A comprehensive review will be undertaken and the investigation will include interviewing the member of the public that made the complaint, the officers involved, witnesses and any video footage available.

Triance says once concluded the RCMP will respond with clarity and accuracy on the outcome.
