PHILIPSBURG–An investigation into police officer A.v.H., who was alleged to have subjected an ex-partner to a serious domestic-related assault, has now been extended after new allegations were made against the officer.
Spokeswoman for the Prosecutor’s Office Tineke Kamps confirmed this to The Daily Herald on Friday. The report into the initial allegations had just been completed, but had not yet been assessed by the Prosecutor’s Office to determine if the police officer would be prosecuted.
A.v.H. remains suspended on full pay until such time that he is either convicted or acquitted. If he is acquitted, he could still be subject to an internal police investigation to see if he has committed any misconduct offences, for which he can be disciplined within the organisation.
