Officer investigated for posting sexually explicit material

26 October 2022

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation alleging that a Police officer in the Waitemata Police District posted sexually explicit videos on a social media website depicting himself and a number of women engaging in sexual activity.

The investigation found no evidence of criminal offending. It did, however, establish the officer was guilty of misconduct in that he had breached the Police ‘Professional Distance Policy’ by engaging in sexual activity with one of his subordinates. Following an employment investigation, the officer received an employment sanction for his behaviour.

The Authority agrees with the Police findings and outcome.
