A 35-year-old Palmerston man will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Friday, 12 July 2019) where he will be charged with multiple sex offences against a young person.

Following an investigation by ACT Policing’s Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team, the AFP officer will be charged with offences against a young person including grooming, acts of indecency and maintaining a sexual relationship with a young person.

The officer was suspended from duty in June 2019.

All AFP members are expected to behave at all times in a manner that upholds the organisation’s core values, reputation and integrity – consistent with community expectations.

As this matter is before court it would not be appropriate to make any further comment.
