Circumstances of Alleged Breaches

On November 13, 2021 PC Tilley was on duty as a Response Officer attached to LRO Team 2, based at the NAB in Kettering. On that date, her specific duties were to deal with the DVSA appointments.
After attending the first appointment PC Tilley drove back to Kettering and parked close to junction 10 of the A14 near Burton Latimer.
At all material times, she knew or ought to have known that Response Officers are required to patrol visibly in order to provide reassurance to the public and in order to be available to respond dynamically to calls for assistance. Further, given the essentially dynamic nature of the LRO role, she would not work from home unless she had sought and obtained permission to do so.
PC Tilley traveled from Burton Latimer to her home address where she completed some work tasks.
An officer was deployed to the same location to carry out missing person inquiries. He contacted the Duty Sergeant, indicating that a marked police vehicle was already at the scene. Inquiries showed that PC Tilley was mapping at the location.
The Sergeant arranged for the force control room to contact PC Tilley to check on her welfare as it was suspected that she had gone home. PC Tilley contacted the Sergeant and asked why she had been contacted for a welfare check. The Sergeant asked PC Tilley for her location to which she replied ‘In Corby’. She asked ‘Where in Corby?’ and PC Tilley replied ‘parked up doing a child PPN’.
At the time PC Tilley was at her home address.
