SYDNEY, Jan 31 AAP - Two police officers are being investigated over alleged drug dealing, armed robbery and extortion offences following a raid on Liverpool police station by the corruption watchdog.

The two Sydney detectives are being investigated by the Police Integrity Commission (PIC) which will air the allegations next month, Network Seven reports.

The two junior detectives with six years experience are accused of robbing drug dealers and selling the drugs back to them as well as selling information to a senior Rebels bikie and possessing illegal firearms.

Teams of PIC officers raided the Liverpool Local Area Command on Tuesday.

The detectives have been suspended on full pay, the network reports.

A PIC spokesman would not confirm or deny whether the officers had been charged.

"I can't make any comment at the moment," the spokesman said.

A NSW police spokesman said he was unable to comment because the matter was in the hands of the PIC.
