Paul Rosenblum corrupt cop influencing outcomes
Former superintendent charged over attempts to influence investigations
A former police superintendent charged with misconduct in public office will front court on Monday, more than a year after officers from the state’s corruption watchdog raided his home on the Mornington Peninsula.
Paul Rosenblum is accused of trying to influence police investigations during his time with Victoria Police, including in a number of senior roles related to procurement and the awarding of police contracts to third parties.
Mr Rosenblum, who recently left the force, is also a former Yarra Ranges police inspector and represented the force as a security adviser at the Australian Security Summit in 2018.
Investigators from the state's Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) descended on Mr Rosenblum’s bayside home in June 2018, where they seized a number of items including firearms and computers as part of Operation Dawson.
Last week they charged the former superintendent
with misconduct in public office following a lengthy investigation.
He’s accused of accessing information from internal Victoria Police
systems and contacting those involved in investigations that were
unrelated to his role.
The Police Association is understood to be funding his legal defence.

offences during the 2018-19 financial year under various state and

East, Chadstone, Brooklyn and three rural properties in Willaura, about
230 kilometres west of Melbourne.
Her colleague, Inspector David Manly, will return to court next month

period of more than six years and hid the phone when IBAC officers
attended his Lara home.
The corruption watchdog also charged other
senior police officers this year including Commander Stuart Bateson,
51, who is accused of disclosing "restricted matters".
