Police Inspector Sacked After Drugs Boast

Post  mara thon on Thu 10 Nov - 17:22


A 46-year-old Scotland Yard chief inspector has been sacked over claims that he boasted about taking drugs on a dating website.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said the officer was dismissed without notice following a two-day hearing into allegations of misconduct.

The officer, who has not been named, was based at a central London unit.

"The breaches relate to claims made to members of the public on an interactive dating website that he was a serving police officer and that he had committed criminal offences including drug-taking and a sexual offence," the IPCC said.

"He was also found to have used his position as a uniformed police officer to have advertised himself online in an attempt to meet sexual partners while in uniform," the statement continued.

An earlier investigation by Kent Police had found that there was insufficient evidence to pursue any criminal allegations.

IPCC Commissioner, Mike Franklin, said: "Police officers, by virtue of the powers vested in them, hold positions of authority and trust in our communities.

"Those who discredit their role cannot expect to continue to serve the public, and, as in this case, they should be dismissed."
