Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

News release

Halifax Regional Police has concluded its investigation into allegations of sexual assaults involving a former Health Services Officer in "H" Division without charge.

This outcome is undoubtedly disappointing and frustrating for survivors and our role, as an organization, as leaders and as colleagues, is to offer support while respecting privacy and confidentiality. Employees are the most valuable resources in the RCMP, and our primary concern.

The Nova Scotia RCMP began an investigation upon learning of survivors' experiences then turned the investigation over to Halifax Regional Police, continuing to participate fully. Various steps have been taken since to ensure survivors, both those who have come forward and those who have not, are aware of services and supports available to them through the RCMP. We will continue these efforts in keeping with our commitment to the health and wellbeing of all employees.
