Laundry list of problems with Kelowna RCMP

Its been more than 14 months since Kelowna RCMP Const. Lacey Browning was filmed abusing a nursing student. The matter is still being investigated. Brown sits at a desk at full pay. She has two other complaints. Const. Siggy Pietrzak remains suspended with pay as investigations grind away on his June 2020 assault of a restrained man. That too was captured on video.
Brian Burkett Const. Sean Eckland is suspended with pay after he sent explicit text messages to a female assault victim. Const. Chad Vance was acquitted of a 2015 sexual assault, but an RCMP Conduct Dismissal is pending.

Brian Burkett, who resigned in 2017, is facing four civil lawsuits for alleged sexual harassment and sexual assault, along with seven criminal charges of breach of trust.
