Cop caught drink-driving on the job

A Southern Region police officer has been charged with drink-driving on the job. 

The male senior constable was driving an unmarked police vehicle Thursday afternoon when he was allegedly under the influence. 

He was spoken to by a senior officer when he returned to the station just after 3.30pm. 

As a result of the conversation, the senior constable was subjected to a breath-test, which returned a positive reading.

Breath analysis soon after returned a reading of 0.138.

The officer was issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for mid-range PCA and is due to appear before Nowra Local Court on April 4.
