RCMP Member Under Investigation for Alleged Sexual Assault


The Province's independent Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) commenced an investigation of an RCMP member for an alleged sexual assault.

On April 18, 2018, SiRT received information from the RCMP regarding an allegation of sexual assault made against a male RCMP member. The allegation is related to events alleged to have occurred on April 17, 2018. Early in the investigation a second incident involving a second complainant came to light.

The SiRT is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia, whether or not there is an allegation of wrong doing. Investigations are under the direction and control of independent civilian director Felix A. Cacchione.

The team can independently begin an investigation after a referral from a chief of police, the head of the RCMP in Nova Scotia or the Minister of Justice. It can also investigate after a complaint from the public.

The Police Act requires the director to file a public report summarizing the result of the investigation within three months of its completion.
