Former police officer charged

A 43-year-old woman from southern Tasmania is due to appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court on 10 March 2023 to answer the following charges:

  • Perverting Justice
  • Unauthorised access to a computer
  • Possess a controlled drug
  • Fraud

The offences are alleged to have been committed in the greater Hobart area between June 2021 and April 2022 while the woman was a constable with Tasmania Police. She was off duty at the time of the alleged offences.

The matter has been the subject of an extensive investigation by Professional Standards, and her employment was terminated in August 2022.

It is not appropriate to make any further comment given the matters are now before the court.
