In NSW, police officers can have
their licences suspended if they are convicted of certain criminal offences or
if their conduct is deemed unacceptable by the NSW Police Force.
The Commissioner of Police has the
power to suspend an officer’s licence if they believe the officer’s conduct has
fallen below the standard expected of a police officer. This can include things
like dishonesty, violence, harassment, or other serious misconduct.
In addition, under the Law
Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act 2002, a police officer’s
licence can be suspended if they are convicted of a criminal offence that
carries a penalty of imprisonment for more than 12 months. This includes
offences such as assault, drug trafficking, and fraud.
If an officer’s licence is
suspended, they may be suspended from duty or placed on restricted duties. The
suspension remains in place until the matter is resolved, either through the
conclusion of criminal proceedings or through an internal investigation by the
NSW Police Force.
