A Met Police Officer has been dismissed from the force without notice after carrying out a business interest that the force did not want her to do.

Although The Met has not stated exactly what that business interest was they dismissed Police Constable Katie Burroughs.

The Met Police press team said that a “A serving police constable has been dismissed without notice following the conclusion of a gross misconduct hearing on Wednesday, 5 May”.

Within the hearing, they found that PC Katie Burroughs who was attached to the East Area Command Unit had breached the professional standards of behaviours which they say was related to ‘orders and instructions.

In 2019, PC Burroughs undertook a business interest that had been refused by a senior officer. Despite this refusal, PC Burroughs continued to operate the business, alongside her role as a police officer.

The independent chair at the hearing considered all of the evidence available and decided that misconduct was proven. PC Burroughs was dismissed without notice.
