SiRT Charges New Brunswick RCMP Officer with Sexual Assault


The Interim Director of the Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) has reasonable grounds to believe that an off-duty RCMP officer committed a criminal offence on May 16-17, 2022. As a result of a SiRT investigation, on January 8, 2024, Constable Vincent Pageau was charged with sexual assault against a female known to him contrary to Section 271 of the Criminal Code.

Mr. Pageau will appear before the New Brunswick Provincial Court at 157 Water Street, Campbellton, on Monday, January 29, 2024, at 9:30 a.m.

The SiRT is responsible for investigating all matters that involve death, serious injury, sexual assault and intimate partner violence or other matters of public interest that may have arisen from the actions of any police officer in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick. Investigations are under the direction and control of an independent civilian director, who has the sole authority to determine if charges should be laid at the conclusion of an investigation.
