Officer charged – Northern Region 21 October

A police officer has been charged over alleged off-duty assaults in the state’s Hunter Region.

In February, an investigation commenced after a physical altercation between neighbours was reported, which involved an off-duty male police officer.

Their inquiries also uncovered another physical altercation between the off-duty officer and the neighbour’s son, which occurred in December 2019.

Following extensive investigations, the 39-year-old detective senior constable – who is attached to Northern Region – was served a Future Court Attendance Notice yesterday (Tuesday 20 October 2020), for assault occasioning actual bodily harm and two counts of common assault.

He is due to appear at Toronto Local Court on Tuesday 1 December 2020.

His employment status is currently under review.
