Broome cop quits over assault claims

A 31-YEAR-OLD policeman accused of bashing a man in custody has resigned from the West Australian police force.

The assault on a 30-year-old man allegedly happened in the Broome Watch House on April 19 and was reported by a senior officer.

The policeman was given 21 days to explain why he should not lose his job but on Monday police said the man had quit the force.

The Corruption and Crime Commission has launched its own investigation into the matter and will hold public hearings next month.

Another officer implicated in the incident remains stood down from duty pending further investigation.
