The Metro Vancouver Transit Police constable who was shot in the arm at a SkyTrain station in Surrey earlier this year has returned to work.

“After several months of recovery among compassionate family, friends and coworkers, I am excited to be back at work and contributing to a safer transit system,” Harms said in a statement Thursday.

“I look forward to returning to patrol as soon as possible, and would like to thank all who supported me as I navigated this complicated time in life.”

Harms returned to work May 7 after the “life altering ordeal,” according to transit police.

“Over the past several months, Const. Harms has undergone surgery and extensive physical rehabilitation,” the release reads.

Now that Harms is back at work, transit police said he will be assigned to light duties with the detectives in the General Investigation Unit.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
