Three more rogue cops

THREE Queensland police officers involved in a series of internal investigations have been stood down, suspended or resigned.

The Ethical Standards Command has taken action against a 37-year-old male constable from the central region following an investigation relating to a firearm matter. The officer has resigned and has been served with a notice to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on January 20, in relation to an offence under the Weapons Act 1990.

In a separate incident, a 40-year-old male constable from the southeastern region has been suspended after alleged conduct involving a firearm matter and other issues.

Investigations are continuing and the constable remains on extended sick leave.

And a female senior constable, also from the southeastern region, has been stood down over the administration of a police social club account.
