Victoria Police officers interviewed, station raided over ‘false’ non-binary claims

Victoria Police officers have searched the force’s Frankston station and interviewed several officers accused of claiming to be non-binary to fraudulently claim more money for civilian clothing allowances.

Chief Commissioner Shane Patton announced a probe into the issue in July, after reports that some male officers had been rorting a discrepancy in the force’s clothing allowance by identifying as non-binary.
A Victoria Police spokesperson confirmed seven male officers had been interviewed over the matter, while a search warrant had been executed at a southern region police station on July 21.
A member of the Frankston crime investigation unit was arrested by detectives from the Professional Standards Command on Monday, according to a police source not authorised to speak publicly.
Patton announced the investigation after the force noted a sharp increase in the number of officers identifying as gender-neutral over the previous year.
The claims were first raised by the @discernibleofficial Instagram page in June, which posted: “We have unconfirmed ­reports from inside Victoria Police that management is pulling their hair out after a majority of a CIU (crime investigation unit) in southern region changed their profile in the HR system to be ‘gender neutral’.”

  1. Is this an article in the onion? How on Earth can you prove or unprove that someone is “gender neutral”? This is peak absurdity.

  2. I find this hilarious really.

    So it’s OK to push your way into the women’s change room at the local baths if you pull a dress over your massive, manly shoulders as long as you identify as female yet if you falsely identify as ‘non binary’ as a police man to earn a few more bucks it prompts an investigation…

    This is pure madness.
