Police Sergeant dismissed for gross misconduct for demeaning, racist and homophobic comments

Published

on

Police Sergeant Kirsten Treasure attached to Croydon borough has been dismissed following a two-week misconduct hearing concluding today, Friday, 27 May.

The officer faced allegations that her conduct amounted to a breach of the Metropolitan Police Service’s Standards of Professional Behaviour, in respect of: ‘Authority Respect and Courtesy’, ‘ Integrity’, ‘Discreditable Conduct’ and ‘Equality and Diversity.’

It was alleged that on three occasions between 30 December 2013 and 13 April 2014 and on 12 other occasions on various unspecified dates that PS Treasure made derogatory, demeaning, racist and homophobic comments about colleagues and members of the public.

PS Treasure also faced allegations that on 24 April 2014, she ignored an initial call for police assistance to attend a crime scene in New Addington.

The initial allegations were referred, in January 2014, to the Independent Police Complaints Commission who determined that the investigation should be carried out locally.

The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) conducted a thorough investigation into the reported allegations.

They were originally made aware of the suggestion that two officers failed to properly respond to a call for a police response to a serious incident, when Andrew Else was fatally stabbed.

The allegations were referred, in January 2014, to the Independent Police Complaints Commission who determined that the investigation should be carried out locally.

PS Treasure and another sergeant from Croydon were placed on restricted duty in July 2014 as the DPS investigation was carried out.

The sergeants were not arrested but were interviewed under caution and a file was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for consideration.

However the CPS decided in April 2015 that the officers should not face criminal charges. The second sergeant was later found to have no case to answer.

It was also alleged that in May 2014, PS Treasure had refused permission to investigate a crime and arrest a suspect when a man was chased out of shop by staff dropping what was believed to be stolen goods.

PS Treasure also faced allegations that on 16 June 2014, she has asked an officer to provide the names of officers who had complained about her behaviour and then pressured an officer not to give evidence against her.

It was further alleged that on 7 January 2015, PS Treasure made untrue statements in a misconduct interview about the events following the call for assistance on the 24 April.

PS Treasure was placed on restricted duties on 16 July 2014.

The panel considered all the evidence presented and found the case of gross misconduct to be proven.

Directorate of Professional Standards, Chief Superintendent Matt Gardner, said: “The catalogue of misconduct by this officer is truly shocking.

PS Treasure has abandoned her sworn oath to protect the people of London and had no regard for the victim, Andrew Else.

“Her language and behaviour has left no room for her to remain within a police service which demands the highest levels of integrity and professionalism.

Her attitudes to people, be they colleagues, the public or victims of crime, have been shown to be appalling, the polar opposite of what those of a police officer should be, and it is clear that the panel were fully justified in dismissing this officer.”

The officer was subsequently dismissed without notice.
