An RCMP officer in British Columbia has been charged with 11 counts related to alleged indecent acts.
A statement from the Richmond detachment says the incidents allegedly occurred near a school in Vancouver.
Supt. Will Ng, the detachment commander for the Richmond RCMP, says senior Mounties were alerted early last year that an off-duty officer was the subject of an investigation by Vancouver police.
Mr. Ng says the RCMP also launched an internal code of conduct investigation.
The BC Prosecution Service has approved charges against Andrew Seangio, including 10 counts of indecent act and one count of voyeurism.
Mr. Seangio has been suspended with pay and is expected to appear in provincial court in Vancouver on April 29.
