An RCMP officer is being investigated by Nova Scotia's police watchdog to determine if they had child pornography.
Neither the RCMP officer's name or sex have been released.
The Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) is responsible for investigating allegations against police in Nova Scotia. SIRT was contacted by the Nova Scotia RCMP on March 3 as the police force conducted an investigation into the possession of child pornography.
SIRT was told the investigation might involve a member of the province's RCMP, according to a news release. SIRT started its own investigation into the officer nine days later when more information became available.
