The Labrador Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer charged with child luring over the Internet, was released on bail Monday.

Ian James Kaulback appeared in provincial court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. He was first arrested Friday, Feb. 8 and subsequently charged with unlawfully luring a child (under the age of 16) by means of a computer system over the weekend.

Kaulback’s bail hearing was scheduled to start earlier in the morning, but was delayed until the middle of the afternoon. He was released from custody with a list of conditions he must follow.

Kaulback is due back in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on April 30 to enter a plea to the charge.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) criminal investigation division is taking the lead in the investigation and has directed all inquires about the case to RNC media relations. The investigation is ongoing.

The court has imposed a publication ban on further information related to the case.

    @ Kathy, I can't believe that he attends things like mental health support groups. What kind of a mental health professional would allow such things? And how could he get access to the internet except through someone in his household? The guy has two accusations of luring kids under 16 years old. This guy keeps coming to the news. Any responsible person would keep him away from mental health groups, away from children and away from the internet.

    Sad to see someone like him in our community as 60% or more are under the age of 16. Perfect place for him to move into. Then to rekindle his image he saves dogs from abuse and negligence. lol

      What is sad is that he is one person "accused" when there are so many convicted offenders around. I find it interesting that people hear one side of a story and make judgements with limited information. The Canadian judicial system is built on the belief that a person is innocent until proven guilty! I'm not sure what dog rescuing has to do with criminal charges, unless they are related. I realize that child crimes occur more often than they ever should. I also acknowledge that people from all professions commit these types of crimes; however, I know of several recent "not guilty verdicts" in similar cases. When children are involved we immediately assume the accused is guilty; however, this is NOT always the case! I believe in our judicial system and hope for the correct outcome, whatever that is! The only people who know the truth and the facts are those involved and that sure isn't me or you!

    Suspended RCMP member Ian James Kaulback RCMP , who is facing charges of child luring has had strict rules set for him. I would like you to know that while Ian James Kaulback RCMP has been in the community of Arviat Nunavut, he has had Full unlimited community access. with no curfew, Full internet access, Attended mental health support groups with the most vulnerable of peoples Unlimited and unsupervised use of a Government vehicle These examples of bold misuse are not only disrespectful and disheartening, but if allowed to continue now that it has been brought to your attention, will constitute a grave injustice to our peoples.

    the safest way to protect our kids is to keep them of the computer or at least keep watch on what they are doing on there

    What is our world cominig too, if we can't trust the Authoritiesto protect us, what is the point of having them. He should be released of duties...if that was any normal person they be all over him.... He should lose his job!!

      That's just the point! Any wise citizenry DOES NOT TRUST THE AUTHORITIES. Let me explain it to you: the authorities want you to trust them. Our freedom and prosperity as a society that wants the rule of law demands of a citizenry that is not so trusting of authority. It is exactly the fault of people, like yourself, who put their trust in the authorities, that these problems exist. Freedom requires lack of trust in authority

    The police pose as minors on the Internet and catch people like this guy all the time. As a police officer, he had to be aware of that. He also had to know that there was a good chance he would be caught and his career would then be over.

    If you can't trust Police, Churches, Teachers and Doctors...who can we trust? The world is a scary place to bring up Children as it is-we spend countless days teaching our kids to tell someone in high authority if something is done to them...If I did not have already have children, I really would think twice about bringing any little darlings into this world now a days!!!

    There's no need for the RCMP to callback Kaulback.
