Public hearings by Victoria’s independent police oversight agency into allegations of serious misconduct by a long-standing Victoria Police officer have concluded.
The hearings are part of the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission’s (IBAC) Operation Bredbo, an investigation into allegations that Victoria Police Detective Sergeant Wayne Dean exploited and misused his position as a police officer for reward to improperly influence people who were involved in commercial disputes or civil litigation.
The hearings also examined allegations that Detective Sergeant Dean engaged in misconduct through maintaining improper associations and relationships and misusing police information.
The public hearings were held over six days and included evidence from two witnesses. 77 exhibits were tendered.
Operation Bredbo is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with credible information relevant to the investigation is encouraged to report it via the IBAC website or phone 1300 735 135.
