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.
