Cop allegedly helped friend illegally track down ex-wife

A QUEENSLAND police officer who allegedly helped a mate who was subjected to a domestic violence order (DVO) track down his former partner should be sacked if found guilty, a domestic violence advocate says.

It is alleged the senior constable accessed private records of the woman's latest address and passed the details onto her ex-husband.

It is further alleged that the officer then joked about it in a series of text messages to the man.

Police have confirmed that Ethical Standards Command (ESC) was aware of the matter but a spokesperson said it would be inappropriate to comment further until the investigation was complete.
