NSW police officers caught dealing drugs

11:17 am on 3 April 2011

Eight police officers in New South Wales have been caught dealing and, in some cases using, illegal steroids.

A two-year investigation run by the Police Integrity Commission has uncovered a steroid ring based in Tamworth in the north of the state.

The ABC reports the drugs were purchased over the internet and imported from Thailand before being on-sold.

One officer, who appealed against his dismissal over the matter, acted as a police informant.

One senior constable admitted to the commission he had been using the drugs himself.
