A Hawke's Bay police officer is on trial for allegedly indecently assaulting five teenagers.

The incidents are alleged to have happened at parties where alcohol was available.

Dunnett, a police officer for 10 years, has been suspended from duty on full pay.

He was working in the Flaxmere community.
