A 52-year-old male Senior Constable from the Road Policing Command has been suspended from the Queensland Police Service after being convicted and sentenced to two months’ imprisonment suspended for 18 months for misusing a restricted computer.
The officer has appealed the court-imposed sentence.
The officer had been previously stood down when he was charged with the offences. Further assessment of the officer’s suitability to remain as a police officer will be determined following the outcome of the appeal.
In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have undertaken to inform the public when an officer faces serious allegations of misconduct. This does not mean the allegations against the officer have been substantiated.
