A 54-year-old male Sergeant from Operations Support Command has been stood down from the Queensland Police Service.
The officer is subject to allegations of using excessive force during the apprehension of a suspect.
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 that the allegations against the officer have been substantiated.
