A former police officer who sexually harassed colleagues at work would have been dismissed if he was still serving, a misconduct hearing was told.
Complaints about his behaviour dated back to 2017, and when one of his victims came forward to complain in 2020, other victims spoke out, said the force.
"We would add that we hope that this decision not only sends a clear message to all officers that such behaviour will not be tolerated but also it encourages others to raise their concerns without any fears as to repercussions," they said.
The chairperson also said the forces should consider ways to support victims "to come forward and be protected".
"We make it clear to all of our officers and staff that we expect the highest standards of professionalism and behaviour, whether in public or in the workplace, and unacceptable behaviour such as this will be dealt with swiftly."
