Police officer stood down, State Crime Command 15 August

A 45-year-old male sergeant from State Crime Command has been stood down from official duty with the Queensland Police Service and has been tasked to perform non-operational duties.

The officer is the subject of an investigation into an allegation of inappropriate access to confidential information. He is expected to next appear in the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on August 21 over the offence of computer hacking.

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.
