A POLICE officer in charge of a country police station who has been a police firearms training officer and competed in shooting competitions, is facing eight firearms charges.

Sergeant Timothy Misson, suspended officer-in-charge of Barcaldine Police Station, had his weapons licence suspended in June, after he was issued with notices to appear in court.

Since 2001, Sgt Misson has been a QPS district firearms training officer and senior firearms instructor in the use of Glock pistols, Tasers and R4 semiautomatic assault rifles.

Sgt Misson also has represented Queensland Police Service in shooting and has competed internationally in clay target shooting events.
