Three Staffordshire Police officers dismissed for sexual misconduct in corruption clampdown

Three police officers from Staffordshire Police have been sacked for sexual misconduct in the last two years in a clampdown on sleaze and corruption.


Nine officers in all have left the force, six for abusing their position including corruption and three for sexual misconduct.

Chief Constable Chris Noble admitted similar problems to those found in London's Metropolitan Police, misogyny, sexism and racism highlighted in the Baroness Casey report, had been found among his own staff.

The Chief Constable said he has a zero-tolerance approach to corrupt police and those who use their badge for sexual predatory behaviour.

The county's top cop outlined the force's tough stance during a Public Performance Review Meeting undertaken after the organisation was placed in special measures by His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services.

He said: "Despite lots of good work in policing, there are challenges nationally about the conduct of officers and staff and that touches us locally in Staffordshire.
