Cases involving three Albury police officers charged with criminal offences went before Albury's magistrate on Tuesday.
Timothy Ronald Simmons and Peter Leslie John Owen are charged with assault over an incident that allegedly followed the arrest of a man who had been aggressive towards a store manager at an Albury shopping centre.
In the other case, Erin Louise Fry is facing a domestic violence-related charge of intentionally distribute image without consent.

None of the trio - Fry's case is unrelated to that of Simmons and Owen - were required to appear before magistrate Rodney Brender over the allegations.
Mr Brender imposed an interim suppression order on details that could lead to the identification of two witnesses to the Fry matter.
He said that while the application was supported by both the DPP - who provided a written submission outlining the reasons for the application - and the defence, it was not a given that he would grant a final order.
"Open justice" had to be a priority, with Mr Brender pointing out that aspects of the case were already in the public domain.
A DPP representative said it was accepted that Fry's name, the charge and very general details of the allegation were already public, but noted that the names of the witnesses were not.
Mr Brender said he wanted time to further consider the application, adjourning his final decision on a permanent non-publication order to November 5.
Simmons' and Owen's cases, which defence lawyer Mark Cronin said involved "the same set of circumstances", were adjourned to November 12.
