Police charge person for making false report 

Halifax Regional Police have charged a person for making a false report in relation to an incident that occurred in November 2022.

On November 6, 2022, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at a residence in Dartmouth. A 33-year-old woman was arrested and charged for obstruction in relation to the incident. In February 2023, the woman made a complaint against the officers that excessive force was used in the arrest.

The Halifax Regional Police Office of Professional Standards conducted a full and thorough investigation in relation to the complaint. The investigation determined that the officers had not used excessive force and that the woman had fabricated evidence and intimidated a witness with threats.

The woman is scheduled to appear in court at a later date to face one count each of the following criminal code charges:

  • Public mischief: Making a false statement that accuses some other person of having committed an offence
  • Public mischief: Doing anything intended to cause some other person to be suspected of having committed an offence that the other person has not committed
  • Public mischief: Reporting that an offence has been committed when it has not been committed
  • Fabricating evidence
  • Intimidation by threats

Halifax Regional Police takes allegations of wrongdoing against our employees very seriously and encourages anyone who has concerns about their interactions with our employees to reach out to the Office of Professional Standards.
