A police officer accused of making methamphetamine and collecting debts on behalf of gang members has pleaded not guilty and will go to trial.

Peter Pakau, 36, was among nine people who appeared in the High Court in Auckland today charged with supplying, conspiring to supply, possession of and manufacturing a class A controlled drug.

Other charges include conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, conspiring to defeat the course of justice and accessing a computer for dishonest purposes.

Pakau faces 27 charges, with police alleging he used a police car and accessed a police database to pass on information to Head Hunters gang members.

All nine defendants pleaded not guilty, and Justice Timothy Brewer set a trial date of October 20 next year.
