Police officers stood down in Brisbane and Southern Regions

Two officers have been stood down from official duty with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) in two separate matters.

A male sergeant from the Brisbane Region is the subject of an investigation relating to computer hacking and misuse. He is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on June 30.

A male senior constable from the Southern Region is the subject of an investigation relating to attempting to pervert the course of justice and is due to appear in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on July 14.

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.
