A Queenstown police constable has pleaded not guilty to an offensive language charge.

Constable Jenny McNee, 43, was charged in March after an internal investigation into an alleged incident involving a local taxi driver in November.

McNee was scheduled to appear in Queenstown District Court today.

However, she entered a not guilty plea before the scheduled appearance and the case has been adjourned for a judge-alone trial in Queenstown on September 1.

Otago rural acting area commander Inspector Andrew Burns has previously confirmed McNee remains on leave without pay for unrelated reasons.

It is understood cab camera footage of the alleged incident has been provided to police by Queenstown Taxis.
