Saint John Police Officer Charged

As a result of a public complaint and subsequent external criminal investigation conducted by the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force, Constable Nicholas Roy, a 17-year member of the Saint John Police Force, has been charged with Assault with a Weapon. He is scheduled to appear in provincial court on July 8, 2022.  

Constable Roy has been re-assigned to administrative duties with no public contact pending the criminal proceedings. Once the criminal court proceedings have concluded, a Police Act investigation will follow. 

“The Saint John Police holds our members to the highest standard of accountability. Any complaints of excessive force are taken very seriously. We are committed to maintaining public trust and always remaining transparent. We will provide the public with further updates as the court process permits and we remain confident in the judicial process” says Chief R.M. Bruce.
