“A Special Case (Hearing”) was held In accordance with Police (Conduct ) Orders 2016.

This Hearing was held because of matters arising out of a gross misconduct matter involving the former Police Constable.

Following the Hearing, a decision was reached today resulting in the former Police Constable’s immediate dismissal without notice. “

The former officer was a significant witness to a serious crime, and then denied being present.

The facts later came to light and after an internal employment process, the officer was dismissed for the dishonesty.

The Bermuda Police Service maintains Standards of Professional Behaviour that officers are expected to uphold.

It was determined that this officer’s behaviour fell well below that standard and was dismissed without notice.

The officer has a right of appeal and as such it would not be appropriate to release further information.
