A McLennan, Alberta RCMP member has been charged following an investigation into impaired driving.
On Friday, June 1, 2018, High Prairie, Alberta RCMP were dispatched to a convenience store where a complainant observed a female individual drive into the parking lot, exit the vehicle and enter the store. The complainant suspected the individual was impaired by alcohol but was unsuccessful in convincing her to turnover her vehicle keys.
High Prairie RCMP were called and attended the scene shortly thereafter. Upon arrival, the attending officers recognized the suspected impaired driver as being Cpl. Anita Doktor who was subsequently investigated and charged for impaired driving.
“Maintaining the public trust is one of the key components of policing,” says Chief Superintendent Rhonda Blackmore, District Commander for the RCMP’s Western Alberta District. “Any conduct that could harm the public’s trust and confidence in their police is taken very seriously.”
Cpl. Doktor is currently suspended with pay and her duty status will be subject to ongoing reviews.
