A former police officer has been found to have committed gross misconduct following a special case hearing held at Police HQ today.

The hearing, chaired by Chief Constable Andy Marsh, was held after former officer PC Adam Crockett was given a conditional caution for two sexual assaults.

He committed these offences against two women at an event in Bristol while off-duty.

The outcome of the hearing was that the officer would have been dismissed without notice if he’d not previously resigned.

Supt Simon Wilstead, head of Professional Standards, said: “This former officer’s actions were wholly unacceptable and he has no place in the Police Service.

“We thoroughly investigated these offences and both victims have been fully supported throughout.

“Although he resigned prior to the special case hearing he’ll now be placed on the National College of Policing’s Barred List preventing him from working within policing and certain law enforcement bodies.”
