Unprofessional behaviour by off duty officer in Waitemata District

20 October 2021

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation following an allegation an off-duty officer at a social gathering showed at least one person video footage of two policing incidents. The videos showed the officer using force against two different people. The officer also showed a work colleague the same video footage. The officer bragged about his actions when showing the footage and made disrespectful comments about the people in the video.

The Police investigation found the allegations were upheld against the officer and he received an employment sanction. The Authority agrees with the Police findings and the outcome reached.
