A former Victoria Police officer has admitted trafficking ice, growing cannabis and professional misconduct.

David Cameron Lister, 37, faced the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Wednesday where he pleaded guilty to six charges, including possessing anabolic steroids, LSD and heroin.

The former senior constable was arrested in Queensland in April after police intercepted him at Townsville Airport with a quantity of ice, the court has previously heard.

He was bailed before returning to Victoria, where he was arrested again and charged.

On Wednesday he admitted cultivating cannabis, possessing ecstasy, LSD, heroin, amphetamines, anabolic steroids and ice, and trafficking ice between January and April this year.

He further pleaded guilty to dealing with between $50,000 and $60,000 known to be the proceeds of crime and, separately, $80,000 known to be the proceeds of crime, in January.

Lister also admitted accessing and distributing police data while employed by Victoria Police.

He quit his senior constable position in January, the court has previously heard.

A charge of trafficking a commercial quantity of methylamphetamine was dropped by prosecutors.

Lister's bail was extended.

He will face a Victorian County Court plea hearing on November 23.
