A former Victorian police officer has been convicted of raping children during his time on the force.
The former officer, whose name has been suppressed to protect the identity of his victims, has pleaded guilty to 18 offences against nine children, including his own stepchildren, which were committed between 1967 and 1979.
More than 50 serving members of the NSW Police force are facing criminal charges for a host of offences including child rape, highlighting the bad behaviour that goes on behind badges across the state.
One officer who was suspended in February faces "historic" charges of aggravated indecent assault, an act of indecency, two counts of inciting an act of indecency, aggravated sexual intercourse without consent and three counts of sexual intercourse with a child.
We believe no one should be given bail when charged with sexually assaulting an innocent child, no one... especially a person in a position of power, like a currently serving Police officer, who may have used that power and trust to commit these heinous acts!
The New South Wales police officer has been charged with child sexual assault offences, following an investigation by the Professional Standards Command.
During the investigation launched last year into alleged historical offences, a report was made to police alleging a nine-year-old girl had been sexually assaulted in the Central Coast region in 2009.
