A Calgary police officer was on the other side of the car window on Wednesday night after being pulled over at a police checkpoint.
The 20-year Constable, Amanda Hill, had been attending a CPS-hosted conference earlier that Wednesday, according to a release from CPS.

When she was pulled over at Elbow Drive and 47th Avenue SW it was determined that she had been driving impaired, and was then arrested and charged.
Hill had been off-duty at the time, and the release states that they are releasing details of the arrest “in the interest of public transparency.”
Hill was relieved from duty with pay, though there will be further review of her situation in the days to come.
“The charged officer is afforded the right to a fair trial, as is any member of the public, and will receive the appropriate support from the service during the court process,” the release states.
