Dillon RCMP officer accused of viewing ‘sensitive, private’ images of woman from surveillance footage in cell block

The RCMP is alleging that a nine-year veteran constable with the Dillon detachment viewed “sensitive, private images” of a woman taken from a surveillance video recording taken in the cell block area of the Buffalo Narrows detachment.

According to a media release, two Dillon RCMP officers came across information on Oct. 13 which indicated that another on-duty officer improperly accessed the images.

They reported it to a supervisor and Prince Albert RCMP’s General Investigation Section launched a criminal investigation, which determined that one still image from the video was copied and printed.

Cst. Wade Chitrena is facing a breach of trust charge and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 16 in Dillon. The RCMP has suspended him with pay and the RCMP has ordered a Code of Conduct investigation.

The woman in the images has been informed about the incident, RCMP said in the media release.
