Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Deputy Saint John police chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in relation to alleged misconduct in the Dennis Oland murder case has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

Oland’s lawyers “noted” the adjournment in the McCloskey arbitration “with a great deal of interest,” said family lawyer Bill Teed.

But he said they are “not in a position to make any comment on it at this time.”

Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Saint John Police Force Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in connection with the second-degree murder trial of Dennis Oland has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

“A recent conversation between the Deputy Attorney General’s office and the Commission’s representative has led the Commission to conclude that it is now in the best interest of justice to agree with Deputy Chief McCloskey’s request to adjourn the arbitration hearing to a date after the evidence in the second Oland murder trial has been completed,” the commission’s executive director Steve Roberge confirmed in an email to CBC News.

A high-ranking officer of the Saint John Police Force will face an arbitration hearing in connection with the murder trial of Dennis Oland.

No details of alleged misconduct by Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey are listed in the hearing notice posted Monday on the New Brunswick Police Commission website.

But Steve Roberge, the executive director and CEO of the commission, confirmed the allegations against McCloskey “are related to the Oland investigation and proceedings.”

Police Chief John Bates has previously described the accusations as “for lack of a better choice of words, sort of a witness tampering.”

Arbitration hearings are scheduled “when the subject officer and their chief of police, or civic authority or commission are unable to come to an agreement on corrective measures resulting from the disciplinary process,” Roberge told CBC
