This is a hearing into the conduct of PC Thomas, an police officer from South Yorkshire Police, who is subject to the following allegations:-
On 17/02/18, he attended at an address in Sheffield, accompanied by a number of other officers, in respect of a concern that a 3 year old child had been abducted.
The child, his father and other family members were present and the child was being held by his aunt.
It is alleged that PC Thomas applied force to the person holding the child, which was not necessary, proportionate or reasonable in the circumstances. The behaviour caused alarm and distress to both the child and the person holding him.
The above alleged conduct breaches the Standards of Professional Behaviour relating to Use of Force and if proven would amount to gross misconduct.
