Appeal continues for Halifax officer demoted for excessive force

A hearing continued Tuesday for Halifax Regional Police Const. Matthew MacGillivray, who is appealing a demotion from the rank of sergeant to constable. The police force’s complaints commission found MacGillivray used excessive force, was discourteous and acted discreditably when arresting a P.E.I. couple last year. The Halifax Regional Police is opposing MacGillivray getting his sergeant rank back.
