Humberside Police officer given final written warning

A Humberside Police officer's been given a final written warning for misconduct after she showed an explicit picture of a colleague to other staff after being advised not to.

PC Katie Jackson's been described as showing a lack of respect and courtesy to the people she was working with.

At a hearing in Goole she's been cleared of the allegation of making a false statement claiming she had been assaulted by a suspect and taking time off as a result.

Detective Superintendent Matthew Baldwin says: "We and the public we serve rightly expect our officers to display the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and respect – whether they are out on duty or with their colleagues – and these expectations have not been met by PC Jackson.

"Her actions were not acceptable and as soon as the allegations came to light we carried out a full investigation into the circumstances.

"Her decision to share an explicit picture of a colleague with other colleagues – after being told not to do so - showed a lack of respect and courtesy to the people she was working with.

"Our Professional Standards Department must uphold the standards of professional behaviour of both officers and staff. This work is vital in contributing to the values of the organisation, its culture and behaviours."
