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.

The jury trial began at the Napier District Court this morning.
