Wollongong police officers under investigation

NSW Police Professional Standards Command has confirmed it is investigating a complaint against two Wollongong police officers.

In a prepared statement, a police spokesman said the two uniformed officers were now on leave.

‘‘The investigation is ongoing and interim management arrangements are in place,’’ the statement said.

‘‘None of these arrangements involve or affect the Wollongong detectives’ office.

‘‘The investigation is ongoing.’’

The spokesman would not comment on the nature of the complaint.

According to the NSW Police Force website, the core business aims  of the Professional Standards Command are to promote professional standards; investigate serious criminal allegations, corruption, and high-risk matters where police officers may be involved; identify and respond to high-risk behaviour in people, places and systems where misconduct is a factor; and promote and support fair, consistent and effective management of all staff.

A spokesman for the Wollongong branch of the NSW Police Association said all police involved in any sort of complaint had support from the association.
