A 33-year-old male administration officer from State Crime Command has today been suspended from duty with the Queensland Police Service. He will be suspended with pay and will be asked to show cause why his salary should not be removed, Queensland Police say.
The member is facing criminal charges of stealing as a servant in relation to the theft of property belonging to the Commissioner of the Queensland Police Service. The member was arrested today and bailed to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 2 May, 2018.
In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have an undertaking to inform the public when a member faces disciplinary processes involving stand down or suspension.
This does not mean that the allegations against the staff member have been substantiated.
