Avon and Somerset Chief Constable Nick Gargan’s sanction hearing with Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens will take place on Wednesday August 19.
The sanction hearing follows an independent misconduct panel finding the Chief Constable guilty of eight counts of misconduct and recommending a sanction of eight final written warnings.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “Today I received the independent misconduct panel’s report which means I can now hold a sanction hearing with the Chief Constable. It has been agreed with all parties that Wednesday August 19 is the soonest most practicable date the sanction hearing can take place. The report is 90 pages long and I am considering the panel’s views and recommendations thoroughly ahead of the sanction hearing.”
