In nearly 28 years of policing, I’d never been dealt with for Misconduct before. I knew that I would need some advice from a Police Federation Representative. I also knew that I would have to think long and hard about what it was that was happening to me and who was orchestrating events. What wereContinue reading “(18) Response to the Misconduct Notice.”

(17) Misconduct! (1st Conduct Notice)

On 14th December 2016 I was visited at work by a civilian professional Standards Officer, Wendy Elliot.

(11) The Meeting with Stephen Davies

On Monday 25th July 2016 I attended Hereford Police Station for the meeting with Stephen Davies, a senior prosecutor for the CPS. Also in attendance was DI Taylor, DS Wells and DC Cleeton.

(10) My Help and Support.

My first face to face contact with CID was on 17th July 2016, two weeks after that had first contacted me. I was asked to go to Hereford Police Station where I saw Detective Constable Cleeton who had initially contacted me and his supervisor, Detective Sergeant Wells.
