HALIFAX - The independent body that investigates major incidents involving police in Nova Scotia has completed three reports involving Halifax-area officers.

However, the Serious Incident Response Team reports state that the facts will not be discussed in any detail because all three cases are currently before the courts.

The investigations involve allegations of assault against two Halifax Regional Police officers and one Halifax RCMP officer.

HRP Const. Chris Mosher was arrested on Dec. 11, 2012, after a woman he’d been dating accused him of sexual assault. Mosher is due in court on Thursday.

HRP Const. Desmond Lambert is facing a charge of assault related to an alleged incident of domestic violence involving his wife. He was arrested Jan. 3, 2013 after police responded to a 911 call from his home.

RCMP Const. Zeran (Justin) Simmonds was arrested Jan. 5, 2013, after an alleged domestic assault involving his girlfriend. Simmonds is due to stand trial in February 2014 on three charges of assault.

The SIRT reports on the three cases can be viewed online at http://sirt.novascotia.ca/publications
