Met officer convicted of harassing female colleague

The serving officer will now face misconduct proceedings.

A Met PC has been convicted of harassing a female colleague.

PC Harvinder Dulay, attached to the Central West Command Unit, faced trial on Thursday charged with one count of harassment. He was convicted the same day.

The court heard that PC Dulay sent a number of unwanted text messages, emails and calls in February 2022 to a female colleague. He was on duty at the time. He was charged on May 1 2022.

The officer is on restricted duties and misconduct proceedings will progress now that criminal proceedings have concluded.

Detective Chief Superintendent Owain Richards, local policing commander for central London, said: "PC Dulay's behaviour was completely unacceptable and it is right that he will now face the consequences of his actions.

"No woman who works the Met should have to deal with repeated, unwanted messages, especially from a work colleague.

"I am glad the victim was able to bring this to our attention. Now that criminal proceedings have concluded, a misconduct hearing will be scheduled as quickly as possible."

He is due to be sentenced on February 9 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
