Female officer accused of fraudulent health care claims

A FEMALE POLICE officer has been suspended with pay, amid allegations of financial fraud that spanned five years.

The 38-year-old senior constable is accused of making fraudulent health care claims between 2012 and 2017.

In a statement issued by NSW Police on Friday, it was explained that in December 2017 investigators from Professional Standards Command established Strike Force Deloraine to investigate the matter.


As a result, the senior constable, who is attached to a specialist command, has been charged with 120 counts of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception, as well as two counts of attempting to dishonestly obtain financial advantage by deception.

She has been ordered to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on 5 June.

While the matter is before the court, she remains suspended from duty with pay.
