Inappropriate social media activity investigated

28 January 2022

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into the alleged behaviour of a Central District Police employee on social media platforms. It was alleged that the employee wrongly gave the impression of being a Police officer, and sent or posted sexualised comments and images.

Police conducted an employment investigation and upheld all the allegations. However, the employee resigned before an employment outcome was decided.

The Authority agrees with the findings of the investigation.
