Victoria Police Officer convicted on further charges following IBAC’s Operation Ithaca


Former Victoria Police Sergeant, Robert Beckingham, was today convicted and resentenced at the Melbourne County Court to an 18 month community corrections order on the charge of perjury.

Mr Beckingham was earlier convicted on charges of unauthorised access to police information contained in the LEAP database that related to nine different people.

Both convictions were a result of Operation Ithaca, IBAC’s investigation into allegations of police personnel misconduct.

Independent oversight of Victoria Police is among IBAC’s most important functions.
