Forthcoming Hearing


A public Misconduct Hearing will take place at 10 am on Wednesday 26th September  2018.


Authorised members of the public wishing to observe the misconduct hearing should attend at The Lifewise Centre, Kea Park Close, Hellaby Industrial Estate, Rotherham S66 8LB.

PC 1054 Thompson, a serving officer with South Yorkshire Police, will answer three allegations that his conduct amounted to a breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Duties and Responsibilities and Honesty and Integrity

It is alleged that on 1st March 2017 PC Thompson was responding to a sighting of a male suspected of committing an offence when his vehicle collided with the suspect causing injuries that required hospital treatment. The manner of the officer’s driving did not accord with the training he had received and he failed to report the road traffic collision.

The officer then completed a statement concerning the incident the contents of which were not a true and accurate account of what happened.

The hearing will be held at the Professional Standards Department, Churchill Way, Chapeltown, Sheffield.

The hearing is scheduled to take 3 days.


The hearing will be held in public via use of a livestream link to the Lifewise Centre. Members of the public should not attend at the Professional Standards Department.


Anyone wishing to attend the hearing may do so on condition that they do not take any step which could lead to the identification of any of the complainants in the case. A signed undertaking, agreeing to the condition, will be required in advance of access to the public hearing.
