Guernsey police officer dismissed after tribunal

A Guernsey police officer has been dismissed from the force after he was found to have breached the police discipline code.

An internal misconduct tribunal had found five allegations of serious breaches of the code to be proved.

Guernsey Police said: "The confidence of the public is extremely important, therefore allegations of misconduct are taken very seriously.

"[This is] to ensure the integrity and standards of the force are maintained."

Sgt James Priest, who had been based in Alderney, was suspended in April following a complaint from a member of the public.

Although police would not confirm the name of the officer, they said there were no other outstanding internal investigations.
