Nottinghamshire hold three misconduct hearings in a week

A former Nottinghamshire Police officer, a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) and a serving officer have been sanctioned at misconduct hearings this week.

A PCSO was dismissed with immediate effect following a misconduct hearing on Monday 27 April after the officer tested positive for cocaine and Benzoylecgonine.

The following day, the Chief Constable Craig Guildford, chaired a Special Case gross misconduct hearing that found a former officer would have been dismissed had they not already resigned following their earlier conviction for stalking and harassing a colleague. 

Both have been added to the College of Policing’s barred list.

On Wednesday 29 April, a serving officer received a final written warning at a gross misconduct hearing led by an independent legally qualified chair.

The officer admitted two charges relating to breaches of the standards of professional behaviour concerning use of force, authority, respect and courtesy and discreditable conduct towards a colleague.

CC Craig Guildford said: “The vast majority of Nottinghamshire Police officers, staff and volunteers uphold the highest standards of professional behaviour. That’s what the public rightly deserve and that’s precisely what I expect.

“Where cases like these do come to light, mainly from internal reporting, the public are right to expect that they will be properly looked into, thoroughly investigated and appropriately dealt with. Nobody is above the law and such cases are always taken seriously and dealt with appropriately.”
