An officer will appear in court today charged with traffic and judicial offences.

About 3.30pm yesterday (Friday 1 October 2021), officers from Professional Standards Command, assisted by Nepean Police Area Command, attended a home at Jordan Springs when they stopped a vehicle nearby after it was seen driving away.

Police spoke to the driver, a 42-year-old male sergeant – who is attached to a command in the North West Metropolitan Region – before he was arrested.

He was subjected to a random breath test, returning a positive result before being taken to Riverstone Police Station, where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.162.

The man was charged with drive with high range PCA and breach of bail.

He was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court today (Saturday 2 October 2021).

The officer is currently suspended from duty with pay.
