An RCMP officer has been docked pay and recommended to be transferred after he made sexually inappropriate and obscene comments to his subordinates.
Two years ago, Sergeant Kenneth Cooper was a non-commissioned officer at the Port Alberni detachment.
A disciplinary decision says he told a subordinate he’d be interested in having sex with her, if she wanted.
She did not.
In another case, an employee asked if he was going to a co-worker’s farewell party.
Cooper said he might, if she exposed her breasts.
Another time, he made a lewd gesture at her using his hand and mouth.
Cooper has apologized.
The board said he could still supervise, but docked him the maximum 10 days’ pay and recommended him for counselling and a transfer.
