Police officer dismissed for sexually assaulting 3 women and making homophobic and racist comments

| December 9, 2015


Following a public misconduct hearing a police officer has been dismissed from Thames Valley Police.

The police officer was dismissed without notice in front of Assistant Chief Constable Nicola Ross on Monday 7th December 2015.

The disgraced police officer admitted six counts of breaching the Standards of Professional Behaviour set out in the Schedule to the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012, following a number of incidents whilst off-duty in Ascot on Wednesday 29th April 2015.

The breaches all related to Discreditable Conduct.

He was found to have sexually assaulted three women and further assaulted one of them. He was also found to have made homophobic comments and a racist comment.

Deputy Chief Constable John Campbell stated: ‘[The police officers] actions fell way short of the behaviour expected from a serving police officer. This behaviour is completely unacceptable within our Force.

Thames Valley Police officers are expected to uphold the highest of standards, even when off-duty, and this is underpinned by the Code of Ethics. All reports of misconduct are taken extremely seriously and investigated thoroughly.

[The police officer] has shown complete disregard for the standards expected of him and there is no place in the Force for those who behave in this way.

Despite what must have been traumatic experiences for the victims I would like to commend them for challenging the behaviour and for supporting the case.

The case was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) who reviewed the evidence in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors and determined that there was insufficient evidence for there to be a realistic prospect of conviction.
