ST. JOHN’S, N.L. _ Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball says his government plans to release the findings of an investigation into the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary as soon as possible.

Nova Scotia’s police watchdog, the Serious Incident Response Team, says it’s investigating allegations involving potential criminal conduct.

The Halifax-based team was contacted by Newfoundland’s Justice Department in November.

Ball says he’s unable to give detailed comment while the investigation is ongoing, but he says he has spoken with Justice Minister Andrew Parsons about the investigation.

Meanwhile, Ball says the province doesn’t have an immediate need for an independent civilian body to investigate allegations against police officers.

But he says government will listen to all recommendations that come from the investigation. (VOCM)
