A Terrace-based RCMP officer was arrested and charged with criminal harassment.

Cst. Chad King, a Terrace-based RCMP officer belonging to the North District Traffic Unit was arrested in Prince George August 19 “in regards to a family matter” said police in a press release today.

King was charged with criminal harassment on August 20, and was released from custody that day with conditions relating to people involved in the incident, said Terrace RCMP Insp. Dana Hart who is looking into the case.

King is not suspended from his job, but was not working at the time of the incident and has not yet started working again, said Hart.

Hart clarified that although King is Terrace based, he works for the North District Traffic Unit which does not belong to the Terrace RCMP. The traffic unit has a Terrace division which shares office space in the same building, he said.

“Traffic services are dedicated to traffic enforcement and education,” said Hart, explaining that most work is done on highways in surrounding areas, and that the Terrace division of this unit has a broad working base.

The Terrace portion of the unit covers from Terrace to Prince Rupert up to the border of Alaska, he said.

And although King is not currently working, he is still posted to the North District Traffic Unit.

His next court appearance is slated for Nov. 1 at the Terrace Courthouse.
