Vancouver SunJanuary 23, 2009
The Vancouver police department, responding to an Freedom of Information Request, released a photo Thursday of a bullet-riddled shooting target that former chief Jamie Graham used during a controversial prank.
On June 30 2006, Graham left the shooting-range target on the desk of then-city hall manger Judy Rogers, with a hand-written note: "A bad day at the range is better than the best day at work."
Rogers was offended by the target and went to Mayor Sam Sullivan with her concerns. Graham apologized for his actions.
The police board said it was satisfied with Graham's apology, and the public complaints commission determined no formal investigation was required.
Graham later retired and is now the Victoria police chief.
