Police have not advised media whether a local police officer charged with assault is still on active duty.
A senior constable attached to a specialist command was charged following an alleged domestic incident last month in Lismore.
The male officer and his wife are believed to have been involved in a dispute on 13 April when he is alleged to have assaulted her.
His wife reported it to police, who investigated.
The 43-year-old has been issued with a Future Court Attendance Notice in relation to the assault, and is due to appear in Lismore Local Court on 30 July.
