Sanction: Final Written Warning

Summary

An officer has received a final written warning following a gross misconduct hearing.

The hearing, which took place at force headquarters over three days, found that PC Toby Beasley breached the standards of professional behaviour, namely: use of force, duties and responsibilities; and discreditable conduct, in his conduct when detaining a man in the course of his duty.

The particulars of the hearing were that the use of the baton strikes by PC Beasley was unwarranted and/or disproportionate to the threat posed, that the number and/or force of the baton strikes was excessive and the way in which the baton strikes were delivered was not measured, controlled or targeted, either adequately and/or at all.

The breaches were proven and PC Beasley was given a final written warning for a period of two years.
