Police officers suspended

This morning police executed search warrants across the Gold Coast and Brisbane following an investigation into the possession and supply of dangerous drugs.

As a result, nine people were detained including two current serving members and a former member of the Queensland Police Service.

Operation Sierra Edgehill commenced in March this year by officers from the Ethical Standards Command with support from the Organised Crime Gangs Group and the Gold Coast Police District in relation to the alleged trafficking of dangerous drugs.

A 28-year-old male senior constable from South Eastern Region and 29-year-old male senior constable from Central Region have been suspended from duty.

As this matter is under investigation by Ethical Standards Command it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.

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.
