NEW WESTMINSTER police officers have been called in to investigate the circumstances surrounding the arrest April 21 of a 47-year-old man and his subsequent injuries while in police custody.

The man, after being arrested following a complaint of impaired driving April 21 at 6 pm, “was injured and after being taken to the local hospital three times during the night, he was subsequently taken to the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC for medical care,” indicates a RCMP statement issued this morning.

“Terrace RCMP have requested that an independent investigation be conducted by the New Westminister Police Service. All in car and cell block video has been secured for the independent investigation,” the statement continues.

“As this incident involved members of the Terrace RCMP, to maintain public confidence I have requested an independent external agency conduct an investigation into the events,  Sunday evening members from the New Westminster Police Service arrived in Terrace and began their investigation, of which the RCMP are fully cooperating.  I am confident  the community will continue to have trust in the RCMP”, said Inspector Dana Hart, officer in charge Terrace Detachment.
