Review underway to determine if New Brunswick should establish police watchdog team

While many people seem to agree a police watchdog is one of the best ways to be transparent with the public about police-involved incidents, New Brunswick still doesn’t have it’s own team.

In Nova Scotia, when an incident – such as one leading to death, injury or sexual assault – is alleged to have occurred as a result of police actions, the province’s Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) gets called in. But because New Brunswick doesn’t have its own watchdog, it’s typically SiRT – a civilian-led organization – that gets called.
