BC RCMP officer receives discipline hearing

100 Mile RCMP detachment Const. Dan Cameron has been reprimanded, forced to forfeit four days pay and referred for professional counselling.

Cpl. Annie Linteau said Cameron had a discipline hearing where the finding of assault with a weapon was established.

Cameron had been charged with the offence after using a Taser on Kevin Campbell at Jake's Pub in 100 Mile House in December 2006.

In an August 2008 judgment, provincial court Judge Lynne Dollis found that Cameron had used his Taser correctly but had insufficient reason to arrest Campbell in the first place and he received a conditional discharge.

Board members at the RCMP discipline hearing in March 2009 expressed concern that Campbell was handcuffed when Cameron Tasered him and that Cameron is an instructor in the use of the weapon.
