A female police officer in South Australia has been charged with using police computers to identify the other girlfriends of a man she met on the internet.
The Adelaide Magistrates Court heard Senior Constable Josephine Anne Hall, 48, has been suspended from duties after she was charged with using information to secure a benefit and stalking.
It is alleged she went to the man’s Parkside house after their relationship ended and wrote down registration details of cars in the street.
Hall’s lawyer said she admitted using the information to contact women who were seeing the man.
But she said Hall believed she was doing the right thing by warning them they might get a sexually transmitted disease from the man.
Prosecutors asked the court to revoke Hall’s bail, alleging she had been seen at the man’s address in the early hours of the morning.
But the defence lawyer denied the accusation.
Hall was remanded on bail and returns to court next month.
