西米德蘭的警察對同事進行性騷擾本應被辭退

一場不當行為聽證會被告知,一名在工作中對同事進行性騷擾的前警官,如果他仍然在職,就會被解僱。

警隊表示,關於他的行為的投訴可以追溯到2017年,當他的一名受害者在2020年出面投訴時,其他受害者也說了出來。

"他們說:"我們想補充的是,我們希望這一決定不僅向所有官員發出一個明確的信息,即這種行為不會被容忍,而且它還鼓勵其他人提出他們的關切,而不必擔心會有任何反響。

主席還說,各部隊應考慮如何支持受害者 "站出來並受到保護"。

"我們向我們所有的官員和工作人員明確表示,無論是在公共場合還是在工作場所,我們都期待着最高標準的專業精神和行為,像這樣的不可接受的行為將被迅速處理。"

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."
