Assault or Obstruct Police Officer

The Police Powers and Responsibilities Act makes it an offence for a person to assault or obstruct a police officer when that officer is performing his or her official duties. This offence includes assaulting or obstructing a police dog or police horse who is acting under the control of a police officer.

For the purposes of this offence, the word ‘assault’ has the same definition as the definition of assault in the Criminal Code and the word ‘obstruct’ includes to hinder, resist and attempt to resist.
