PC 3063 Nabeel Khan appeared at an accelerated misconduct hearing on Thursday 1 July 2021 in relation to breaching the Standards of Professional in respect of Confidentiality, Discreditable Conduct, Honesty and Integrity, Orders and Instructions and Duties and Responsibilities. The officer had accessed the police computer system on 6 occasions without a legitimate policing reason. He had also failed to report a notifiable association with two individuals. This conduct amounted to gross misconduct and the officer was dismissed without notice. No further details are provided in respect of this matter as to do so would compromise sensitive police operations.   



Purpose of Public Misconduct Hearing

Misconduct Hearings are held to present the facts of a case and allow officers the opportunity to explain their conduct and the circumstances surrounding an allegation. Witnesses may also be called to give evidence. The purpose of a Public Hearing is to show that the Police disciplinary system is open and transparent and holds officers in breach of acceptable Standards of Professional Behaviour, or those that found guilty of misconduct, accountable for their actions.

Purpose of Public Special Case Hearing

Special Case Misconduct Hearings are designed to demonstrate that officers are held to account for their actions. However, they are ‘fast track’ procedures, where there is incontrovertible evidence to establish, on the balance of probabilities, the conduct of the officer constitutes gross misconduct and the officer concerned should cease to be a police officer, without delay. For this reason there will be no witness testimony other than from the officer concerned, if they choose to give evidence.
