N.S. police watchdog investigating alleged domestic abuse by officer

Nova Scotia’s police watchdog is investigating allegations of domestic violence at the hands of a local RCMP officer.

The Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) opened the case on Friday, after it was notified of the alleged assaults by the Halifax District RCMP.

“An civilian adult male, the affected party, contacted the RCMP to report that he was a victim of domestic violence,” reads a news statement from SiRT.

Pat Curran, interim director for SiRT, confirmed the adult male is a civilian and none of the alleged assaults involved a weapon. He was unable to elaborate on the relationship between the victim and RCMP officer.

Curran also couldn’t speculate on how long investigation into the matter will take, but said he doubted it would be one of the “lengthier cases.”

A single investigator has been assigned to the issue.
