A POLICE constable will face allegations of gross misconduct at a hearing next week.

North Yorkshire Police say he is accused of using inappropriate language on two occasions, failure to attend an appointment with a member of the public to take a statement, failing to properly investigate a domestic incident, and failing in his duties and responsibilities in relation to lost and found property.

The allegations will be heard by an independent panel, and if found to have committed gross misconduct, the male PC could face dismissal, written warnings, or management advice from supervisors.

The Misconduct Hearing will take place from 10am on Monday, October 10, at North Yorkshire Police Headquarters, Newby Wiske Hall in Northallerton.

A number of places are available for members of the public to attend the misconduct hearing.

Anyone interested in attending must register at northyorkshire.police.uk/access-to-information/misconduct-hearing before 4pm on Thursday.
