Annette Kennedy, a civilian employee with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, has been charged with three breaches under Access to Information and Privacy Act.
Kennedy, 45, was not in court Monday morning, but was represented by her lawyer Jeff Brace.
Brace told the court he is still waiting for disclosure on the case. The crown says it should be available by the end of the week.
Kennedy is accused of snooping in the personal files of two people.
An investigation was launched by Information and Privacy Commissioner, Donovan Molloy, after the RNC received a complaint for a member of the public.
The offense dates are in September and October of 2016.
Kennedy has been suspended without pay. She has another court date slated for later this month.
