SE Qld police officer stood down

A Police Officer from Queensland’s South Eastern Region has been stood down from official duty.

The 56-year-old male constable is under investigation by members of the Ethical Standards Command regarding allegations of accessing and releasing official and confidential information, failing to treat persons with respect and dignity and being untruthful.

In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, the QPS decided to release information like this when an officer faces serious allegations of misconduct.
