Two PSNI officers arrested following 'corruption' investigation

Five other officers from the same Co Tyrone team have been repositioned.

TWO PSNI OFFICERS have been arrested in connection with an investigation into alleged corruption in Co Tyrone.

The two have been released on bail and are suspended from duty, the BBC reports. Five others from the same team in Cookstown have also been repositioned.

“Any conduct, whether on or off duty, which brings or is likely to bring discredit on the Police Service will be investigated in order to establish whether or not a breach of the Code of Ethics has occurred,” said Assistant Chief Constable George Hamilton.

Details of the alleged misconduct have not been released.
