I’ve been watching this case as it has unfolded. He should’ve lost his job immediately but definitely should go now and she needs compensation - not least for having to move twice.

Same in Vic. Rightly so the Vic pol can't sneeze without being investigated.
The public do not hear this so much but dodgy police are dealt with in the public system and departmentally. Of course they need to be caught but these days it is hard to keep too much on the down low.
Well not always. I know a woman who was presented with a timeline of her movements on a night out with friends. Her policeman ex and his partner followed her in the patrol car almost all of the night.
She reported it and nothing happened - he still had a job.
I knew her mum well and her mum knew I’d dated him years before he joined Vic Pol so she told me the entire story.
He was later charged with assault when he saw a fellow police officer he was casually dating kiss the other police officer she was also casually dating - he belted the guy and smashed his windscreen with a cricket bat. He was suspended without pay that time but when the case took ages to get to court he was reinstated for a bit. From memory it all took a couple of years and was periodically in the papers. Eventually he was sacked but it should have been immediate and not waited on the criminal case - there were witnesses and he admitted it.
