Victoria’s embattled Police Chief is going to court, to stop an external investigation into his inappropriate behaviour on social media.
Frank Elsner has filed a petition in BC Supreme Court in Vancouver, to prevent the Police Complaint Commissioner from launching a probe.
Elsner has admitted sending inappropriate Tweets to the wife of one his officers.
Commissioner Stan Lowe started an investigation, after finding an internal probe by the Victoria Police Board was insufficient, forcing Elsner to step aside.
In Elsner’s petition, he claims an external probe is an abuse of process.
