An investigation is underway after a man was hurt during an arrest by the Bathurst Police Force.

In July 2022, officers responded to reports of an individual in distress at a home.

An altercation broke out between a man and police.

The man was arrested and suffered a broken arm. He was then admitted to the hospital.

A member of the public contacted the Serious Incident Response Team on March 22, 2024.

SiRT is responsible for investigating all matters that involve death, serious injury, sexual assault, intimate partner violence or other matters of public interest to be investigated that may have arisen from the actions of any police officer.
