SIRT-NL launches investigation into RCMP conduct at Stephenville Airport

The Serious Incident Response Team has launched an investigation into a potentially serious incident that occurred while RCMP officers were removing an individual from a plane and taking him into custody at the Stephenville International Airport.

SIRT-NL Director Michael King has directed a SIRT-NL investigation.

SIRT-NL is a civilian-led oversight agency, which conducts its own investigations into serious incidents. Serious incidents within this context are those involving serious injury, death, sexual offence, domestic violence or any matter of significant public interest arising from the actions of a police officer in Newfoundland and Labrador.

There will be no further information at this time because this investigation is ongoing.
