A WARWICKSHIRE Police sergeant has been dismissed for gross misconduct after harassing women at work.

The sergeant, who the force has not named, had completed 15 years in the police.

His dismissal followed a professional standards investigation after concerns were raised around how “the officer had engaged with a number of women whilst on duty.”

Det Supt Gary Watson, Head of Professional Standards said: “The misconduct hearing found that the behaviour of the former sergeant fell below the standards we expect from our officers and staff and amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour.

“This fell outside the expectations made clear in our Code of Ethics and it is for this reason he was dismissed.”

The hearing was heard in private due to the “vulnerability of witnesses” and was chaired by Dep Ch Con Karen Manners.
