Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet confirms that an employee of the Department was arrested this week for alleged indecent acts against minors.

The Australian Public Service has a zero tolerance for any abuse, particularly abuse of children. These allegations are extremely disturbing and we are cooperating fully with the Northern Territory Police.

The Department has suspended this employee pending court processes.  

We remain committed to ensuring appropriate work practices in dealing with all vulnerable people.

While this case is currently under investigation, I will not be making any further comment.
