A 42-year-old off duty Australian Federal Police (AFP) officer has faced the ACT Magistrates Court today (Saturday) charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm following a family violence incident overnight.

ACT Policing said the officer involved had been suspended from duty.

Chief Police Officer for the ACT Justine Saunders said that the matter had been referred to AFP Professional Standards and would be treated extremely seriously.

“An incident involving any AFP member is very concerning. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what role you have in the community any form of violence is not tolerated by ACT Policing,” she said.
