An officer appeared at a misconduct hearing on Tuesday 7th July 2020.
The officer accepted that he had failed to notify South Yorkshire Police that a County Court Judgement had been made against him. He should have notified the Force in accordance with Force Policy.
In addition, the officer accepted that he had submitted an insurance claim indicating that he was off sick and receiving half pay when at the time the claim was made, the officer was in fact on full pay. The panel decided that this was an innocent mistake but it was compounded by the officer’s failure to address the issue after it had been raised with him.
The officer accepted that he had acted in breach of the professional standards regarding orders and instructions in respect of the first matter and discreditable conduct in respect of the second matter.
The officer admitted that the conduct amounted to misconduct. The panel agreed.
The panel determined that the most appropriate outcome was a Final Written Warning.
