Running illegal brothels, mixing with bikies and dealing drugs: New South Wales police officers in hot water as damning new report reveals 'rampant misconduct'

    The Police Integrity Commission revealed several officers under investigation
    Supplying drugs, taking bribes, and running with bikies were some allegations
    The report found 1178 complaints against NSW police officers in the last year
    One senior constable was accused of running an illegal brothel in Sydney


Several New South Wales police officers have allegedly been caught with their hands in plenty of illegal activities, a new report has revealed.

The Police Integrity Commission's annual report detailed 1178 complaints against NSW police officers in the last year.

The long list of misconduct allegations facing several NSW police officers includes supplying drugs, taking bribes, destroying and tampering with evidence and associating with bikies.

In one case, a senior constable is facing accusations of being involved in running illegal brothels, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The officer, who was based in the Sydney metropolitan area, was also allegedly receiving large payments from overseas that were transferred into his own accounts.

The Integrity Commission launched an investigation into the senior constable, Operation Snowshoe, in 2015.

The investigation found enough evidence against the officer to able to refer the matter to the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions and the Commonwealth DPP to consider charges.

In another case, an officer based in Sydney's inner west was found to be giving information to known organised crime figures.

Another officer was under investigation for working as a debt collector.

While the raft of misconduct allegations may be damning, it is not the first time the NSW police force has been subject investigations into illegal activity.

The now historic Wood Royal Commission in 1995 saw 284 police officers named for their role in corruption-related offences, such as bribery, money laundering, drug trafficking, fabrication of evidence, and fraud.

The commission, headed by Supreme Court judge James Wood, sought to determine whether corruption and serious misconduct were entrenched in the police force.
