A Metropolitan Police officer has been cleared of gross misconduct and misconduct following the completion of a hearing that was held on Wednesday 4th March.
PC Patrick Carragher, based on the Central South Command Unit, had faced accusations that his conduct had amounted to violations of professional standards relating to honesty and integrity, orders and instructions and duties and responsibilities.
PC Carragher faced the hearing after it was alleged that on 5th October 2017 in the Old Kent Road area, he carried out an ‘unauthorised pursuit’, failed to report a police collision and later completed a collision report but failed to include important information in it.
He was also accused of giving misleading information to ‘an injured party’ and his superiors.
The panel, headed by a legally qualified chair, found that none of the allegations was proven as either misconduct or gross misconduct.
