Nine months after an incident led to the suspension of four RCMP officers, police are remaining tight-lipped about what happened, but say decisions are coming for two officers in question.

Since the suspensions were announced on Dec  8, 2015, two officers remain suspended from the force — one with pay, the other without. 

One of the officers who was able to return to the force has since been sent somewhere else in Canada. 

Police will not say where that officer was sent or who they were. 

"This is an internal matter," said  Const. Isabelle Beaulieu, a spokesperson for the RCMP.

"We cannot talk specifics." 

Beaulieu did say the investigation into the unknown incident has ended.

"There was an administrative investigation and that has concluded," said Beaulieu  

"So at this point it's the administrative process that is still ongoing."

A fourth officer, Cpl. Andy Munro, was also connected to the incident. He retired shortly after the suspensions were administered in December. 

Beaulieu said the two officers that remain suspended are now both awaiting an administrative decision as to their future with the force.
