Qld Police Officer stood down

A Queensland Police Officer has been stood down from official duty, amid claims he drove a police vehicle dangerously.

The Senior Constable from Road Policing Command is also accused of providing false and misleading information.

The QPS stresses the Officer is only the subject of an investigation and the allegations have in no way been substantiated.


Back in May it was revealed that two Officers had been stood down over a chase ending in Pacific Pines.

Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley and Senior Constable Barry Wellington.

Both were the subject of a disciplinary investigation concerning allegations of engaging in an unauthorised pursuit, driving or causing a police motor vehicle to be driven in a manner likely to endanger other road users, and inappropriate use of force.

The Police Union labelled the investigation a “disgrace”.
