A constable in Tasmania has been sacked after stealing from the police force and possessing and using testosterone.

The 33-year-old man from the state's south was dismissed on Wednesday following an investigation.

"The investigation established that the constable had stolen items from Tasmania Police and had possessed and used illicit drugs (testosterone)," Acting Deputy Commissioner Donna Adams said in a statement.

The officer has been charged and prosecuted with stealing and the possession and use of a controlled drug and possession of a thing used for the administration of a controlled drug.

Ms Adams said the constable had been suspended from duty during the prosecution and Tasmania Police would make no further comment.
