9:15 am on 22 June 2010

Seventeen sexual harassment complaints were made against police staff by colleagues in the past three years.

All the complaints were lodged by women.

Police say in one case an employee resigned during the investigation process and in another the person received formal counselling.

They say the other 15 complaints were investigated and conciliation at a low level was found to be the appropriate outcome.
