A TWEED police officer charged with misconduct after allegedly having sex at a police station while on duty will face court on May 7.

Kingscliff Senior Sergeant Mark Anthony Garner, 48, was not at Lismore Local Court yesterday when his lawyers argued to have the hearing adjourned.

Court documents stated police will allege on September 16, 2011 between 2am and 4am that Garner did "misconduct himself in a public office by having sexual intercourse with a female at a police station whilst on duty."

He is also alleged to have aided and abetted the possession of a prohibited pistol, which was a NSW police-issued Glock pistol, into the possession of a person not authorised or licensed to have it.

Police will further allege Garner did not take all reasonable precautions to ensure that a prohibited pistol did not come into the possession of a person who wasn't authorised.

Sen Sgt Garner was charged in November after an internal investigation took place.
