The additional allegation of stalking and further allegations of domestic violence will now be considered as part of any future disciplinary action.

“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,” police said in a statement.

“This does not mean that the allegations against the officers have been substantiated.”

The officer is currently suspended from official duty and is due to front Brisbane Magistrates Court on May 16.
