Victorian police officer still on the job despite behaviour

A DETECTIVE has kept his job and rank despite exposing himself to women.

The officer, from Melbourne's north, was charged with indecent behaviour over an incident last year. He was arrested at a beachside suburb after a complaint.

The officer appeared before a magistrates' court where he was fined $1000. No conviction was recorded. An internal disciplinary hearing later found the claims proven.

He was placed on a good-behaviour bond and will be ineligible for promotion until December next year.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the penalty was at the discretion of the officer hearing the case.

The Herald Sun believes he had been experiencing personal problems before the offence, his first.
