RCMP look into 'inappropriate material'

Kamloops RCMP are in the early stages of a complex investigation involving a number of youth throughout the community.

The investigation comes after the RCMP were contacted by School District 73 staff after learning about the alleged exchange of inappropriate material.

According to Cpl. Cheryl Bush it is too early to categorize the nature of this investigation or to comment on any specific details.

"We are dealing with people under the age of 18, and will restrict our comments accordingly, as per legislation," she explains. "Releasing information or conducting a parallel media investigation at this point could be damaging to the entire judicial process."

Bush assures the community that the RCMP are working closely with the school district on the matter and that the safety of students is a priority.

"When we became aware of the information, we acted swiftly and have numerous investigative and support resources allocated to this file."

She reminds parents to be engaged with their children’s online and social media activities.

"This can lead to tough or uncomfortable conversations, but these conversations are critical. Cybertip.ca is a website that offers information to teens and parents about protecting yourself online."
