A former NSW Police officer has been charged with assaulting a teenager while on duty in the state's north.

In September 2019, officers attached to Richmond Police District began an investigation into the alleged assault in Casino involving a then 39-year-old senior constable and a 17-year-old boy.

The officer, formerly attached to Richmond Police District, was on-duty at the time of the alleged incident.
