On Monday (21 October) a panel in Peterborough found the former officer had breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour for Confidentiality and Discreditable Conduct.

The conduct relates to a domestic assault in December 2016 and a breach of the Data Protection Act in June 2017.

The panel agreed that his conduct amounted to gross misconduct and that he would have been dismissed had he remained a serving officer.
