Police officer suspended over alleged but unspecified drug offences

by | Apr 14, 2022 | Cops | 0 comments

A NT Police officer has been suspended from duty with pay over alleged drug offences, but NT Police have chosen not to reveal the charges, or include basic details routinely provided about other alleged offenders who are not officers.

Police media manager Rob Cross said the 23-year-old man had been served a Notice to Appear over the alleged offences and was being investigated by Crime Command and the Professional Standards Command.

He said the information was provided in accordance with the NT Police Transparency Guidelines and no further comment would be made.

Generally when police issue media releases about alleged drugs offences not involving a police member, it is usual for them to provide more detail, including where the alleged offender is from, the charges, and the alleged quantity and variety of the drugs involved.

And they would also provide a court date for the media to report on it.

Mr Cross said the Office of the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption and the NT Ombudsman will be advised of the matter.
