Briohny Lee Granzien was ordered to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday after being charged with six offences last month.

The charges came after Queensland’s corruption watchdog and the police’s ethical standards command investigated allegations of unauthorised access and disclosure of confidential information by the now 41-year-old.

She is charged with two counts of disclosure of official secrets.

The offences involve her allegedly communicating a “classified police intelligence document” on February 8, 2021 and a police report on July 28, 2015, according to court files.

Granzien is accused of communicating information that came to her knowledge or possession by virtue of her position as a police officer and “that was her duty to keep secret”.

She is also facing four counts of computer hacking and misuse which allegedly involves using a restricted computer to gain a benefit, namely the obtaining of information for another.

Those alleged offences occurred on August 19, 2017, January 4, 2020, January 28, 2020 and February 5, 2021.

Granzien is due to appear again in the same court on July 11.
She was granted bail on her own undertaking.
