Your article of Dec. 15, Mock incident hones skills, should have mentioned that Const. Robin Boffy's name has appeared previously in The Daily Courier, during the trial of RCMP Const. Geoff Mantler.
I hope your readers picked up on the irony.
During the trial, your front-page story included the testimony of police expert Sgt. Jeremy Lane of the Abbotsford Police.
"Lane criticized the positioning of Const. Robin Boffy, the second officer to arrive. A photo showed her standing on the truck's passenger side, apparently in the line of fire if Mantler had discharged his pistol."
Sgt. Lane went on to say, "It doesn't sound like they do a lot of training in Kelowna for that type of vehicle stop. We do that in Abbotsford quite a bit. . . . If there's not a lot of training, then they're less likely to do it properly."
Now, we see Const. Boffy pictured during a practice "takedown," not holding a gun but a baseball bat. The question your reporter (and perhaps our ever diligent politicians) failed to ask was if the Kelowna RCMP would continue to schedule and implement ongoing training as part of a regular program or only as a public relations response to another community fiasco.
However, and more seriously, at least ask why it took so long after the original Mantler incident before this training occurred.
