A police officer denied two counts of unauthorised access to police reports and dishonesty in Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Nicole Outerbridge, 32, of Hamilton Parish, was formally charged with the offences which were alleged to have occurred on September 11 and October 2 in 2018.

She was also charged with failure to keep confidential information a secret on May 28 last year.

The officer also faced another charge of giving false information about another officer, Lakila Hart, between June 25 and July 3 last year.

Ms Hart was charged on March 10 with two drug offences, three counts of unauthorised access to police records and two counts of instructing a colleague to collect unauthorised police information.

Senior Magistrate Juan Wolffe released Ms Outerbridge on $5,000 bail.

The case was adjourned until July 27.
