Constable breached code of conduct with sexual relationships

25 November 2021

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into an allegation that a Bay of Plenty Police officer engaged in sexual relationships with women he had met in the course of his duties.

The investigation established he had sexual relationships with two women, but found no evidence of coercive, abusive, or unlawful behaviour by the officer. However, the behaviour was in breach of Police’s values and their Code of Conduct.

The officer resigned from Police before an employment investigation could be completed.

The Authority agrees with the Police findings and outcome.
