PC given final written warning for ‘unwanted touching’ of police staff

Unless there is more to this than is included in the article it again seems a massive overreaction to what is agreed by the panel to be a single incident of extremely brief duration with no indication of sexual motivation from a hard working officer with no history of inappropriate behavior. The job has lost any sense of perspective and proportionality in its bid to be seen as 'on it' in terms of anything that someone somewhere s deems as inappropriate.

What a big fuss over nothing, and to what cost. The way things are heading it will soon be inappropriate to shake hands.

There were obviously no problems with her making a complaint after the event so couldn't she have said something about 'being in her space' at the time and avoided all this. As for 'inferior', I've never met a member of police staff who would ever describe themselves being of an inferior 'rank' to a PC, quite the opposite in fact, so I don't know why she would feel he had the authority to do anything to her she didn't like and not be told to 'get lost'. Apart from anything else, as it appears to have been accepted all round that there were no malicious or sexual overtones to his actions, surely this could have been sorted out with 'suitable words of advice' from his supervisors ?
