B.C. cop accused of corrupt practice and deceit to go before public hearing

VANCOUVER - A Vancouver Police officer accused of professional misconduct will be the subject of a public hearing.

The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner says allegations against Const. Stephen Todd include corrupt practice, deceit, neglect of duty, improper disclosure of information and discreditable conduct.

The office says it received information about the allegations from the Vancouver Police Department in March 2011.

An investigation resulted in the matter being adjudicated through the police disciplinary process, which determined misconduct had been proven regarding some of the allegations and dismissal was proposed as one of the measures that should be taken.

Officers may request a public hearing or review on the record if the disciplinary measure proposed is dismissal or a reduction in rank, and Todd chose to have a hearing.

Retired B.C. Court of Appeal judge Wally Oppal has been appointed as adjudictor for the hearing, which has not yet been scheduled.
