A police officer has been stood down over an alleged assault on a 30-year-old man in the Broome Watch House last month.

Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan served a loss-of-confidence notice on the 31-year-old First Class Constable this afternoon.

The officer has 21 days to respond and explain why he should not lose his job.

A police spokeswoman said the alleged assault occurred on April 19 and was reported by a supervisor at the Broome police station.

The Corruption and Crime Commission is investigating the alleged incident.
