A police officer has been dismissed for a breach of the Met’s Standards of Behaviour.

PC Matthew Broome attached to Lambeth Borough has been dismissed following a hearing concluding on Thursday, 2 June.

The officer faced allegations that his conduct amounted to a breach of the Metropolitan Police Service’s Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of: Honesty and Integrity, Orders and Instructions, Confidentiality and Discreditable Conduct.

It was alleged that on 20 May 2014, PC Broome received a private text message from a friend asking whether he could let them know whether they were wanted by police.

PC Broome conducted several searches of the police data systems and passed confidential information to his friend without authority.

Having considered all the evidence provided to the panel, the allegations were proven as gross misconduct.

The officer was formally dismissed without notice.
