Police Officer Returns To Duty More Than One Year After Suspension

A sergeant from the northern region was stood down from official duty with the Queensland Police Service on November 23, 2017.

The officer was subject of an investigation regarding allegations of misconduct. The relevant criminal and discipline proceedings have since been finalised. The stand down order has now been revoked and the member has returned to duty.

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. This does not mean that the allegations against the officer have been substantiated.
