MEADOW LAKE, Sask. – The commander of the Meadow Lake RCMP detachment has been suspended with pay after an internal code of conduct investigation was launched.

The commander was removed on June 10 after allegations of inappropriate workplace behaviour.

Although RCMP officials said they will not release the name of a member who is the subject of an internal code of conduct investigation, they confirmed he was a senior member at the staff sergeant rank.

His name will be released if the process leads to a formal disciplinary hearing.

Officials said it is important for the public to note the member is entitled to a fair and due process throughout the investigation.

Meadow Lake is about 225 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
