Police Inspector dismissed after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct found proved
Following a lengthy investigation by the Counter Corruption Unit at Lincolnshire Police, a total of 19 allegations were brought against Inspector Adam Syred relating to his repeated failure to maintain appropriate professional boundaries with female colleagues including by behaving in an inappropriately familiar manner toward them, his making of inappropriate sexual or personal comments to female colleagues and his inappropriate sexual touching of female colleagues and members of the public.
Over the course of a six-day Misconduct Hearing, thirteen witnesses gave evidence regarding the Officer’s behaviour and the Misconduct Panel subsequently found 18 of the 19 allegations proven, that 8 of the allegations involved sexual misconduct and 7 of which were so serious so as to amount to Gross Misconduct.
Having heard further submissions the Panel determined that the appropriate disciplinary outcome was dismissal without notice.
