Officer's name: An officer
Date of the hearing: 8 and 9 February 2022
Time of the hearing: 10am
The place at which the hearing will take place: The Professional Standards Department, Sheffield.
A description of the alleged conduct:
On 21 August 2020, an officer sent an email to a member of staff at South Yorkshire Police, in which the officer stated that they had an appointment on the morning of the 25th August 2020, which was untrue and which they knew to be untrue.
On or around the 22 August 2020, whilst off sick from work, the officer travelled to Greece without notifying a supervisor and/or seeking authorisation or leave.
On 25 August 2020, while off sick from work and on holiday in Greece, during a phone call with the Occupational Health Unit, an officer informed the Occupational Health Unit that they were at a funeral in Belgium, which was untrue and which they knew to be untrue.
The above conduct breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour relating to Honesty and Integrity and Duties and Responsibilities and individually or cumulatively amounts to gross misconduct.
The officer has a number of health problems, which will be discussed throughout the course of the hearing. The Legally Qualified Chair has decided that the health of the officer and the allegations are inextricably linked to the allegations and therefore a part public hearing could not be practicable. A decision has therefore been made that the hearing will be in private and the officer will not be named.
