KAMLOOPS, B.C. – More than a year after he was shot and seriously wounded at a traffic stop, Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jean-Rene Michaud is back on the job.

Supt. Brad Mueller says Michaud has returned to work in a limited capacity, working part-time on administrative duties.

Mueller says Michaud’s return is a positive step that has been good for morale in the force.
