A Victorian police officer dismissed for sexually harassing colleagues, including joking about up skirting and grooming girls with McDonald’s Happy Meals, has been reinstated.
The constable also discussed the allegations with colleagues despite being told not to do so, telling them he planned to make a fake apology and would give “grief” to a woman he believed had made a complaint.
His dismissal was overturned last month on appeal to the independent Police Registration and Services Board.
