After more than 10 adjournments Shane Diehm's case set down

A HEARING into allegations a former senior detective from the NSW North Coast lied to the police watchdog is expected to run for two days.

Shane Charles Diehm was acting as crime manager at the Tweed/Byron Command when he drew the attention of detectives investigating the use and supply of drugs in northern NSW and Gold Coast police ranks.

He was reprimanded over the use of cocaine at a Sydney party attended by state and federal police in 2011 and left the NSW police last year.

He is charged with four counts of giving false/misleading evidence at a hearing before the Police Integrity Commission.

The case was adjourned more than 10 times in 2012.

A special fixture hearing set down for February this year has since been re-listed to begin at Sydney's Downing Centre on March 24.
