A police officer is set to be charged in court following investigations into an alleged assault in Goulburn earlier this year.

It’s after a 40-year-old man was allegedly injured while in the custody of police on 2 September.

A senior constable attached to a Southern Region command has since been issued a Future Court Attendance Notice for two counts of common assault.

He’s scheduled to appear at Moss Vale Local Court on 17 January, 2023.

A police statement said the officer’s employment status was currently under review.
