West Yorkshire Police will publish information about public misconduct or special case hearings here.
Misconduct hearings deal with allegations of gross misconduct by Police Officers or Special Constables.
All misconduct or special case hearings should be held in public from 1st May 2015 in accordance with the new legislation to improve transparency and accountability and ensure public confidence. There may be certain circumstances when it will be necessary and appropriate for all or parts of a hearing to be held in private. The identity of victims/witnesses will be protected during the hearing as appropriate.
Forthcoming Misconduct Hearings:
PS Harrison will attend at a misconduct hearing for breaching the standards of professional behaviour in relation to:
Discreditable Conduct - The officer, whilst off duty, was arrested on suspicion of driving a motor vehicle whilst unfit through drink. He appeared at York Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty to driving whilst over the prescribed limit.
Date of Hearing- 13:00hrs on 9 January 2017
As there is sensitive information that will need to be discussed during the proceedings, the hearing will be held in private. No applications to attend will therefore be accepted.
