A former NSW Police officer has been charged following an alleged on-duty assault in Casino.

In September 2019, officers attached to Richmond Police District commenced an extensive review regarding an alleged assault in Casino involving a then 39-year-old senior constable and a 17-year-old teenage boy.

He is due to face Lismore Local Court on Monday, 22 March, 2021.

The man is no longer a member of the NSW Police Force.
