Officers investigated for behaviour during off-duty social event

6 July 2021

The Authority oversaw an investigation into an allegation an officer sexually assaulted another Police employee during an off-duty social event in February 2020.

The criminal investigation did not result in charges being laid due to there not being sufficient evidence.

An employment investigation was undertaken for the officer involved in the criminal investigation as well as another officer and both officers were found to have acted inappropriately towards the Police employee.

Both officers received a sanction as an outcome of the investigation.

The Authority agreed with the findings of both investigations.
