PCC outlines next steps in Chief Constable misconduct proceedings


Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens today outlined the procedure to be followed in the Chief Constable’s misconduct proceedings.

She said: “The misconduct process is not yet complete. I’m waiting for the misconduct panel’s report, when I receive that I will hold a further hearing with the Chief Constable to determine his sanction.

“I have read the open letters from the staff associations and I am listening to the views of residents. The whole procedure for police misconduct is strictly regulated. Like all judicial processes when proceedings are not complete it is not possible to discuss or comment upon them until they have been finalised.

“In the meantime Chief Constable Nick Gargan will not be returning to work in Avon and Somerset. However he will be carrying out some national work with the National Police Chiefs Council.”

Following the sanction hearing Sue Mountstevens will publish the misconduct panel’s report, the cost of the proceedings and her decision on her website.
