Spe­cial con­sta­ble kicked out of force for gross mis­con­duct

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SPE­CIAL con­sta­ble has been dis­missed from Thames Val­ley Po­lice fol­low­ing a spe­cial case mis­con­duct hear­ing.

SC Oliver O’Brien, who was based at Amer­sham Po­lice Sta­tion, was found to have breached Stan­dards of Pro­fes­sional Be­hav­iour set out in the Sched­ule to the Po­lice (Con­duct) Reg­u­la­tions 2012.

His be­hav­iour was found to have amounted to gross mis­con­duct in re­la­tion to dis­cred­itable con­duct and hon­esty and

Ain­tegrity fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent while he was at­tend­ing a course at the Pro­ba­tioner De­vel­op­ment Unit at Sul­ham­stead Train­ing Col­lege be­tween Jan­uary 19 and 23 this year.

Head of the Force’s Pro­fes­sional Stan­dards Depart­ment, de­tec­tive chief su­per­in­ten­dant Tim De Meyer said: “We ex­pect po­lice of­fi­cers to have high stan­dards of be­hav­iour both in their pro­fes­sional and per­sonal lives, and this is un­der­pinned by the Code of Ethics.

“SC O’Brien’s be­hav­iour fell short of the stan­dards Thames Val­ley Po­lice expects of those who serve the force. I hope his dis­missal sends out a strong mes­sage to the pub­lic that we will in­ves­ti­gate all re­ports of mis­con­duct and deal ro­bustly and swiftly with any­one who is found to have breached the stan­dards ex­pected.”

SC O’Brien did not at­tend the hear­ing, which was held be­fore the Chief Con­sta­bleFran­cisHab­good on Fri­day.
