An Officer attended for a misconduct hearing, which was heard in public on 12th/13th June and concluded on 21st September 2017.
The allegations against the Officer were that he had made sexist, offensive and abusive comments to junior colleagues on a number of occasions from December 2014 until November 2015.
The Officer admitted the allegations. He also accepted that his conduct was in breach of the standards of professional behaviour, namely Authority, Respect and Courtesy.
The Officer admitted that his conduct was misconduct but denied that it amounted to gross misconduct.
The panel found that the conduct was gross misconduct.
The panel decided that the appropriate outcome was a final written warning.
The panel made clear that the usual outcome for this type of behaviour would be dismissal but in this particular case medical evidence clearly established that the Officer’s conduct was caused by his medical condition.
The Officer is not being named in order to protect the welfare of the officer given his medical condition.
