(Scroll down for video) A police detective who built his career by successfully shutting down pimps, has been arrested on charges of sexual assault and obstruction of justice, according to police in Canada.

The Vancouver Police Department said that they have arrested Detective Constable James Fisher, after being accused of sexually assaulting multiple women.

Fisher has been charged with three counts of sexual exploitation against one woman for sexually assaulting her over a period of five months.

He was charged with one count of breach of trust by sexually touching a witness in a criminal prosecution, one count of sexual assault, and one count of obstruction of justice by providing false or misleading information.

Chief Constable Adam Palmer said that the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner, was notified of the investigation focused on the time period between August 2015 and November 2016.

As a result of that investigation, Crown Counsel has approved six criminal charges against Fisher. He has been suspended from duty as a result of this investigation.

“It is rare for a Vancouver Police Department officer to be charged with offenses such as these, and it is not reflective of the other members of our police department. There is no information to suggest that another officer was involved.

“Every day, our officers are faced with very difficult and challenging situations. Our officers build strong relationships with the community, and they act with integrity, courage, compassion and respect,” Palmer said.

Fisher was a 29-year veteran of the force and received several awards for his outstanding police work.
