Australia, Police


An AFP employee is set to face court today after being charged with one count of negligent, furious, or reckless driving. The charge is in contravention of section 117(2) of the Road Transport Act 2013 (NSW). The incident allegedly occurred while the employee was off duty, and a Court Attendance Notice was issued by the NSW Police on May 3, 2024.

The case is scheduled to be heard in a New South Wales court on July 1, 2024. Pending the outcome of the court proceedings, the AFP employee has been suspended from duty. As the matter is now before the court, no further comments will be provided at this time.
