Bridgewater Police Chief Investigated For Alleged Assault

Posted on Monday, August 29, 2016 17:28 PM

The mayor of Bridgewater confirms the chief of police is currently being investigated by the Serious Incident Response Team.

SiRT started investigating John Collyer two weeks ago for allegedly assaulting a teenage girl and obstructing justice.

David Walker says he is hopeful it will be thorough and quickly resolved.

"It's a difficult time for Chief Collyer and his family. It's a difficult time for everyone involved."

Collyer was placed on administrative leave on August 18 following a decision by the Bridgewater Board of Police Commissioners.

No criminal charges have been laid.
