Just out of curiosity, would your opinion change if the guys son is guilty of the things that the Police woman is accusing him of?

No it would not. It's not her place to be posting that. It's libelous and she should be sued in her personal capacity

Here's a fictitious example:

Sandringham SAPS Station Commander Abzo Van Niekerk posts to his Facebook page that Marine 1 Dershowitz and his accomplices Alan Rosenberg and Theo Goldstein are pedophiles who brutally molested young Avi Geekostein after his Barmitzvah at the Glenhazel Shul.

Now in this case, the friends of Station Commander Abzo are likely to believe his Facebook post is true because of hiss position as a policeman. But the story may or may not be true. It must be proven in court. If there is sufficient information available to be made public, it should go through official channels, not a rogue police officer, no matter how vile the accused criminals such as Marine 1 Dershowitz are. In this case, even if it prevented Marine 1 Dershowitz and his cohorts from molesting another young boy, Gary Van De Haarwyk, it will still not justify Station Commander Abzo's actions. He should be fired and sued in his personal capacity.

If you have caught a criminal doing something red handed, can you then post about what you saw and post their photos and those you took of it?

maybe you could post but quantify by saying the alleged suspect and so forth. But it is still troublesome from a professional view, because the police have a role to serve and that role does not extend to posting such material

She is being sued, so it must be proven in court. But she over stepped. She is a policeman. She wants to be judge and jury? What's next? Executioner
I think you are blowing this a bit out of proportion. Its convenient to forget that this is a mother whose child has been threatened. I would believe that to her, her childs eye witness account and probably those of his friends are enough to know who the guilty party is.
