Ex-Police Officer A was dismissed at an accelerated hearing on Friday 5 January for conduct amounting to gross misconduct.
A former police officer was dismissed for conduct amounting to gross misconduct after it was found as proven at an accelerated hearing.
The public hearing, held on Friday 5 January, found former Police Officer A had breached standards of professional behaviour on four occasions, namely standard one – honesty and integrity, standard two – authority, respect and courtesy, standard three – equality and diversity and standard nine – discreditable conduct.
The allegations against the officer occurred between July 2021 and May 2022.
Chief Constable Pam Kelly, who chaired the panel, said:
“The behaviour of this former officer is totally unacceptable.
“The communities of Gwent and the officers’ colleagues deserve to be treated with professionalism and respect.
“As the Chief Constable of Gwent Police I will not accept this level of behaviour.
“I am grateful to the victims who came forward and their bravery is the standard I expect and very much appreciate. By coming forward they have allowed us to take action and remove this individual.
“We will continue to send a clear message to colleagues and the public that this behaviour has no place in our service, and we will pursue and remove those who damage confidence in our police service.
“We will continue to send a clear message to colleagues and the public that this behaviour has no place in our service, and we will pursue and remove those who damage confidence in Gwent Police."
The former officer did not attend the accelerated hearing in person, which was held at Vantage Point in Cwmbran on Friday 5 January, and resigned from his position prior to the hearing taking place.
He will be placed on the College of Policing’s barred list in due course.
