Tasmania Police is continuing to keep under wraps the identity of a senior officer accused of sexual harassment.
The officer is not named in documents released under Right to Information laws this month, with police citing a part of the legislation which covers exemptions from the disclosure of personal information.
In 2018, it emerged that a senior figure in Tasmania Police was the subject of a sexual harassment complaint.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Labor MHA Shane Broad grilled Police Commissioner Darren Hine on the matter in a budget estimates hearing that year.
Commissioner Hine told the hearing that the officer in question had received counselling after a complaint was received about him.
Dr Broad questioned whether counselling was the best method of dealing with matters such as sexual harassment, to which the commissioner said every harassment complaint was treated on a case-by-case basis.
Now police say there have been "no further reported incidents of this nature" against the officer.
"There was only the one ... complaint and one ... complainant regarding this incident," the RTI decision read.
"The member underwent and completed the appropriate training in relation to this matter as arranged by the Commissioner of Police.
"The officer was 'counselled' by the Commissioner of Police which was noted on their dossier. The complainant was satisfied with the outcome of the enquiry and did not wish to take the matter further."
