Burnaby RCMP has asked the West Vancouver Police Department to conduct an independent investigation after a female was injured while  being apprehended under the Mental Health Act.

On Aug. 22 Burnaby RCMP were called to a home after receiving a 911 call. The officers' investigation resulted in the female being apprehended. During the apprehension, the female suffered an injury to her arm.

She was treated for that and then committed for psychiatric assessment. No RCMP officers were injured.

"The WVPD has assigned a number of investigators who will deal with this investigation in a fair, transparent, and timely manner," said West Vancouver Police in a press release.
