Cambridgeshire police constable sent racist, discriminatory text messages, misconduct hearing learns
A police constable sent racist and discriminatory text messages to a colleague, a misconduct hearing was told.
The PC, who has now retired from Cambridgeshire Constabulary, sent the texts between 2009 and 2010, a private hearing at force headquarters heard last week.
The officer, who has not been named, was found to have breached the standards of professional behaviour in respect of equality and diversity and discreditable conduct, which amounted to gross misconduct.
The hearing heard that he sent texts to a colleague with racist, discriminatory and inappropriate language.
It concluded that the officer would have been dismissed had he still been with the force.
