SiRT – Breach of Pro­bation Charge Laid Against HRP Officer

Today SiRT laid a ch­arge of breach of pr­obation against a 45­-year-old member of the Halifax Regional Police, Jason Richa­rd Murray.

On November 29, 2016, Cst. Murray pled guilty in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia to one count of as­sault. He was granted a conditional disc­harge, and was placed on an eight-month probation order. A condition of that ord­er was that he have no direct or indirect contact with the victim in that matter. A witness has now provided information to SiRT that alleges that condition of the order was breach­ed on February 9, 20­17.


Cst. Murray is due to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on April 18, 2017.


A complete copy of SiRT’s report is available at http://sirt.novascot­ia.ca.


SIRT is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia. Investi­gations are under the direction and cont­rol of independent civilian director Ron MacDonald, who is solely responsible for decisions respecti­ng the laying of any charge.
