A Policewoman working in the Northern Region, which takes in Townsville, has been given permission to return to work after earlier being stood down.  

The 33-year-old Constable has returned to official duty with the Queensland Police Service after being stood down since August 28.

She was the subject of an investigation regarding driving with a blood alcohol concentration over the general alcohol limit but under the mid-range driving limit.

Relevant court proceedings have now been finalised and the officer remains subject to internal disciplinary proceedings.

In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have undertaken to inform the public when an officer faces serious allegations of misconduct.
