Two male constables, aged 41 and 31, from Northern Region have been stood down from official duty with the Queensland Police Service and will be tasked to perform non-operational duties, Queensland Police say.
The officers are the subject of an internal investigation that whilst off duty they improperly used a conducted energy weapon (Taser).
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 officers have been substantiated.
