Off-duty Police recruit investigated for allegations of indecent assault towards recruits

15 January 2024

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into allegations from three recruits of being indecently assaulted by a fellow recruit while socialising together at a restaurant and bar.

A criminal investigation determined there was sufficient evidence to charge the officer. However, it was deemed not to be in the public interest to do so. The recruit resigned from Police during the employment process.

The Authority is satisfied with how Police conducted their investigation.
