A police officer has been suspended after being charged with alleged child sex offences.
The 43-year-old senior constable was arrested about 3.50pm yesterday by detectives from the Professional Standards Command, assisted by the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad.
He has been charged with ‘aggravated act of indecency’, two counts of ‘aggravated indecent assault’, ‘attempt sexual intercourse with a child under 10’, ‘grooming child under 14 years for unlawful sexual activity’, two counts of ‘have sexual intercourse with a child 10-14’, and ‘peep or pry’.
The charges relate to offences that allegedly occurred between 2007 to 2018.
The officer, who has been suspended from duties from a specialist command, has been refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
