A NSW police officer is facing dozens of charges for allegedly falsely presenting himself as a soldier.

Police from the Professional Standards Command seized an Australian Army dress uniform and mobile phones when they raided a home in Sydney's south west in September.

The 30-year-old officer, a senior Constable attached to a special command, resigned in late September.

He faces 29 charges under Commonwealth criminal law, including eight counts of falsely representing himself as someone who had been conferred a service medal, and 21 counts of falsely impersonating a returned soldier.

He will appear before Parramatta Local Court on February 12.
