An Emergency Protection Order involving RNC constable Steve Curnew has been withdrawn in court.
Curnew was arrested and charged with failing to comply with an emergency protection order following an incident on July 30.
According the charge, the RNC officer failed to comply with conditions under the Family Violence and Protection Act. The charge says he was ordered to stay away from the applicant, a woman, including any residence, property, business, school, or place of employment.
Curnew was released on a recognizance pending a September 6th court date.
This afternoon, Curnew’s Lawyer, Randy Piercey, appeared in court on behalf of his client.
The applicant’s lawyer appeared by teleconference.
Piercey informed the court he was given a written agreement asking that the EPO be dropped. He told the judge the applicant also contacted the RNC this morning to say she would be withdrawing the order.
The Chief of Police with the RNC said at the time there was no violence during the incident. The constable is currently non-operational and on leave.
Curnew is the former Media Relations Officer with the Constabulary, and most recently served with the Criminal Investigation Division.
