Senior Constable Luke Alexander Donoghue is charged with procuring a child under supervision or care for sexual penetration, procuring a child under supervision or care for an indecent act, misconduct in public office and supplying alcohol to a minor.

Donoghue, who previously was based at a station in Melbourne's southeast, was charged following an Ethical Standards Department investigation.

He has been suspended without pay.

A temporary court order banning his name from being published lapsed on Wednesday.

Donoghue is due to face the Melbourne Magistrates Court on February 25 for a pre-trial committal mention hearing.
