PC 1029 Scott Brown has been dismissed without notice following a Misconduct Hearing under the provisions of the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012.
The hearing was held at Police Headquarters on Wednesday (23 August).
Following the hearing, Det Ch Insp Sue Wilshire, Deputy Head of Professional Standards, said: “PC Brown used excessive force during the arrest of a 17-year-old male in Bristol. His actions were disproportionate to the situation he faced.
“The public expects officers to use force appropriately, proportionately and only when absolutely necessary.
“In line with national policy and to increase transparency, we now record and compile information relating to all incidents where force is used and this information will be made available to the public.”
