RCMP members do not get their pick of the best parking spots.
It's the message Southeast District Traffic Services is sending after one of its members was caught parking in a handicapped parking stall in the Kamloops area Friday afternoon without due cause.
Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said a photograph of a police cruiser illegally parked circulated online.
"The picture was on Facebook," Ward said. "The bosses got wind of it and he was issued a parking violation—just like everybody else."
"The member is being issued with the applicable parking violation ticket along with receiving the appropriate corrective guidance," said Staff Sgt. Terry McLachlan in a press release. "The member will be spoken to in order to ensure a short sighted decision such as the one made regarding proper parking practices does not reoccur."
