Halifax Regional Police (HRP) is taking the issue of downtown violence seriously. After being made aware of the Facebook post written by John Wesley Chisholm, Police Chief Jean-Michel Blais assigned Superintendent Sean Auld to look into this matter further. Supt. Auld is the Divisional Commander for Halifax Peninsula and has responsibility for policing and public safety in the downtown core. He is reviewing the circumstances of the incident and is in the process of reaching out to Mr. Chisholm, the patron, the Carleton and the officers involved.
We will report back once we’ve had an opportunity to fully review the file and speak with the people involved.
