      As stated in this article, the officers name is being with held in order to maintain the “integrity of the investigation”. This is to keep the officer and their family safe, as well as keep outside interference away. I’m sure at some point, for instance, if the officer is found guilty, their name will be released to the media, and the public.

    The police do not release the name of anyone charged in a domestic assault incident to protect the identity of the alleged victim.

    This case comes up in court tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. I will be there and I can assure you there will be a court ordered publication ban in place. I will go anyway, but that is what the report will say.
