Policing the police can be a juggling act, something cops in Saanich, B.C., learned after an officer was found to have abused his authority for what he believed to be a good cause.

Constable David Smit was found guilty by his chief of abusing authority and deceit.

Smit was then suspended without pay for seven days and reduced in rank to third-class constable.
