Slater and Gordon Lawyers in-depth understanding of police officers and police culture means we are best placed to assist in off duty criminal matters.

Off duty incidents can have serious implications for police officers in their professional as well as personal lives, potentially leading to misconduct proceedings. Our police experts are on hand to assist with the misconduct as well as criminal aspects of any proceedings relating to off duty incidents.

Access to experts in other disciplines

Off duty incidents require careful management, and may require input from more than just a criminal lawyer. Our Criminal & Misconduct solicitors have access to police experts in our other departments that may be required to manage any off duty matters effectively. These include our Employment Solicitors, our Reputation Management department  and our Family Lawyers if required.


Off duty criminal matters are not funded by the Federation directly. Many local Federations have arrangements for legal expense insurance for their members; contact your local Branch Board for more information on your Federation’s arrangements.
