Misconduct Hearings

This page provides information on both forthcoing misconduct hearings and the outcome of cases of formal misconduct proceedings.

Northumbria Police demands the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and integrity from its officers and staff. Where those standards are not met, consideration may be given to instigating misconduct proceedings.

We are committed to transparency and accountability. As such we will publish the outcomes of misconduct meetings, misconduct hearings and also those who resign prior to the conclusion of misconduct proceedings (where it is established that there was a case to answer).


Misconduct Hearings

Where the officer/member of staff faces allegations of gross misconduct they would attend a misconduct hearing. If they are found to have breached the relevant standards of professional behaviour they may be dismissed.

Misconduct Meeting
Where the officer/member of staff faces allegations of misconduct they would attend a misconduct meeting. If they are found to have breached the relevant standards of professional behaviour the maximum penalty would be a final written warning.

Resignation

Police officers are ordinarily not allowed to resign if they face a misconduct hearing for gross misconduct.

We will publish these outcomes regularly. Information on forthcoming hearings is available here.
