VANCOUVER – The Vancouver police department has launched an internal investigation into the off-duty conduct of three of its members after they got into an “altercation” with three other men early last Friday morning.
According to a brief written statement released by the department Thursday afternoon, the altercation took place on Granville Street and involved three veteran members of the force.
No official complaint has been filed against the VPD, the statement said, and none of the officers has been suspended.
The investigation will be conducted by the department’s professional standards section.
VPD Const. Howard Chow said the department will not comment further until the investigation is complete.
