 The Supervisor for the County of Leduc community peace officers and a peace officer himself is facing a criminal charge after allegations of harassment surfaced in 2010.

  The allegations of harassment were initiated on April 14th, 2010 when the victim, an employee with County of Leduc, attended the Leduc RCMP Detachment and made a complaint about the peace officer’s behavior.

  The victim had been speaking with the peace officer on occasion as she was seeking a summer employment opportunity with the Community Peace Officers.  The victim began to receive unwelcomed communication from the peace officer causing her to fear for her safety.

  A thorough investigation was completed and forwarded to the Crown Prosecutors Office for review.  As a result of the review, charges were laid against the peace officer on November 9th, 2011.

  Douglas Allan Atchison, a 44 yr. old male from Leduc, AB is facing the following charge:

  1. Criminal Harassment

  ATCHISON is scheduled to appear on the matter in Leduc Provincial Court on January 19th, 2011 at 9:30 am.
