The Northern Territory Police Association (NTPA) respects the decision of Acting Justice Dean Mildren, who this morning ruled Constable Zach Rolfe’s trial will go ahead in Darwin.

The NTPA will continue to assist Constable Rolfe as he prepares to vigorously defend his charge in the Darwin Supreme Court. 

He, like all, has the presumption of innocence.

Constable Rolfe, and his family, continue to have the Association’s full support and we will provide ongoing assistance to all members directly and indirectly involved in the incident and court proceedings.
