Halifax police board chair backs decision to put 2 officers on admin duty

The chair of the Halifax board of police commissioners says she has confidence in the process followed by Halifax Regional Police Chief Dan Kinsella in the case of two officers who were placed on administrative duty following the arrest of a 15-year-old boy in Bedford.

The union that represents police officers, the Halifax Regional Police Association, sent an email to the board of police commissioners, the mayor and the city's CAO on Feb. 24, calling the chief's decisions "inconsistent, rash, and unpredictable."

The union took issue with the chief's decision to place the two officers on administrative duty following the arrest of the teen, who was released without charges. The union said the decision to place the officers on desk duty was made too quickly to allow for a full investigation.
