RCMP Member Charged with Assault and Choking


The province’s Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) has laid two charges against a member of the RCMP.

On February 21, 2022, SiRT was contacted by the RCMP after receiving a complaint of an alleged assault that had occurred earlier that day.

After investigating the matter, one charge of assault and one charge of choking were laid against Cpl. Mark Kellock, a member of the RCMP Northeast Nova District. He will appear in Pictou Provincial Court on September 26, 2022, at 9:30 a.m.

SIRT is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia. Investigations are under the direction and control of independent civilian interim director John Scott, who is solely responsible for decisions respecting the laying of any charge.
