Two police officers dismissed after breaching standards of professional behaviour

Two police officers have had an allegation of breaching standards of professional behaviour proven against them. PC Deborah Sands, 48, and PC Kris Green, 36, based in East Sussex, were the subject of an accelerated misconduct hearing chaired by the Chief Constable at Sussex Police Headquarters, Lewes, on Monday 14 March. An accelerated misconduct hearing is held when there is incontrovertible evidence and it is in the public interest to remove the officer from service as soon as possible, or in the case of an ex-officer, to have them placed on the barred list. They faced an allegation of breaching standards of professional behaviour in respect of Discreditable Conduct, after they were charged with assault following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). The two officers were convicted following a trial in December 2021 of assaulting a teenage girl by using excessive use of force against her while she was being detained in Eastbourne in May 2020. The allegation against PC Sands and PC Green were found to be proven by Chief Constable Jo Shiner, with a decision that they be dismissed from the force. CC Jo Shiner said: “We expect our officers to act with the upmost integrity, and in accordance with the force’s values, the Code of Ethics and the Standards of Professional Behaviour. The actions of these two officers fell short of that and in accordance with the College of Policing guidance, they have been dismissed from the force.”
