After continuing a relationship with a former criminal, a senior detective in Abbotsford, B.C., with 21 years of experience was suspended and demoted by the police chief.

On March 23, 2015, chief constable Bob Rich ordered the detective (whose name was not publicly revealed) to stop any further contact with a man identified as “Mr. A.” 

The man had recently been released from prison after he served 75 months in the U.S. for drug trafficking and money laundering.
