Two more police officers have been charged with criminal offences after the alleged leaking of photos of former North Melbourne coach Dani Laidley while she was in custody.
In a statement Victoria Police confirmed a senior constable from the Southern Metro Region had been charged with misconduct in public office, unauthorised access of police information and two counts of unauthorised disclosure of police information.
He has been suspended and will appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on February 11 next year.

A constable from North West Metro Region has also been charged with two counts of unauthorised disclosure of police information.
He has been transferred to “other duties” and will appear at the Ringwood Magistrates Court on February 5.
“The investigation into these serious acts of misconduct remains ongoing,” a Victoria Police spokesman said on Monday morning.
It comes after a leading senior constable was last week charged similar offences over allegedly sharing photos of Ms Laidley.
Ms Laidley, previously known as Dean, changed her name after her lawyer Rob Stary explained in November that his client had undergone a gender transition.
The photos of Ms Laidley in custody were widely circulated, and the leak was slammed by Victoria Police chief commissioner Shane Patton as “appalling”.
