A POLICEMAN has shot himself in the leg at Victoria Police’s Glen Waverley Academy. The 30-year old officer, who is stationed with Victoria Police’s elite water police unit, was undertaking firearms training when his gun accidentally discharged while he was holstering it. The man was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to The Alfred hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A police spokesman described the injury as superficial. The accident happened about 11.30am while the officer was under instruction. The incident comes less than a week after Victoria Police launched a $6 million advertising campaign aimed at securing new recruits.
