A Derogatory Remark Allegation About Transgender woman Leads To Met Sgt Timothy Brown Facing Misconduct Hearing

Hearing to be held in private: 1-5 March 2021.

It is alleged that PS Brown has breached the standards of:

  • Professional Behaviour in relation to Authority Respect and Courtesy, Equality and Diversity and Discreditable Conduct.

It is alleged that PS Brown shared an inappropriate article on his Facebook page which made reference to sexual activity in the workplace and made comments in respect of it.  It is further alleged that in the presence of junior officers PS Brown undermined another Sergeant on the team by using unpleasant language to refer to her and her ability in carrying out her job. It is also alleged that PS Brown referred to a member of public in a sexual manner and made a derogatory remark about a transgender woman.

It is alleged that these matters amount to Gross Misconduct, which is so serious that dismissal is justified.
