Province needs its own police watchdog to investigate serious incidents, report says

An independent consultant hired to review the operations of the New Brunswick Police Commission recommends the creation of a civilian agency to investigate deaths, injuries or other serious incidents arising from the actions of police.

A civilian watchdog — something six other provinces already have — was one of 22 recommendations in Alphonse MacNeil's report, which was released Thursday.

The government will bring "stakeholders" together in the next month or two to discuss the report, including the feasibility of setting up a serious incident response team in New Brunswick, Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart told reporters.
