Allegations of sexual harassment - Wellington District

17 January 2022

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation where it was alleged an officer behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner towards three colleagues. It was alleged the officer sent sexually explicit images and texts, which made his co-workers feel vulnerable, uncomfortable, and sexually objectified.

Police completed a thorough employment investigation into the matter. All the allegations were upheld and the officer was issued with an appropriate sanction. The Authority agrees with the outcome of the Police investigation.
