An officer has been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service following a misconduct hearing.

Detective Sergeant Robert Dawson, attached to Specialist Crime and Operations Command, was today Wednesday, 13 January formally dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service following a misconduct hearing.

The officer faced charges that his conduct amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour in respect of authority, respect, and courtesy; duties and responsibilities and discreditable conduct following an allegation that in 2010, in the course of investigating an allegation of serious sexual assault, he engaged in an inappropriate sexual relationship with the vulnerable victim.

The panel found all allegations proven for the officer and that they breached the standard of professional behaviour in such a serious way that this amounted to gross misconduct.

The panel determined that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal without notice.

Detective Sergeant Robert Dawson attached to Specialist Crime and Operations was found not guilty of inappropriate behaviour with a female victim of crime at Southwark Crown Court on Friday, 12 June 2015.
