Police stand down sergeant from southern region

A SERGEANT from the southern region has been stood down from official duty with the Queensland Police Service.

A police spokesman said the officer, a 42-year-old man who was stood down yesterday, was the subject of an investigation into "performance and conduct issues".

"In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have an undertaking to inform the public when an officer faces disciplinary processes involving stand down or suspension," the spokesman said.

"This does not mean that the allegations against the officer have been substantiated."
