Head of volunteer police sacked for gross misconduct

Published

on

DYFED-POWYS POLICE’S Head of Volunteer Police has been sacked following a disciplinary hearing.

The police said in a statement: “Following a thorough and swift investigation into two allegations made about his conduct, Dyfed-Powys Police’s Special Chief Officer Cairn Newton-Evans has this morning faced a public disciplinary hearing.

“On 28 November SCO Newton-Evans was served with a conditional caution for sexual assault and tendered his resignation from the post of Chief Officer for Dyfed-Powys Special Constabulary.

“Chief Constable Mark Collins instigated a fast track disciplinary process and a public misconduct hearing was heard on Thursday (Dec 12).

“The hearing, chaired by Mr Collins, found that gross misconduct was proven and the decision was made to dismiss SCO Newton-Evans. It was also ruled that his name be added to the College of Policing barred list, preventing him from working in law enforcement in the future.”

Chief Constable Mark Collins, told The Herald: “Cairn has given his time to Dyfed-Powys Police for many years and I am grateful for the work he has done. However, as an organisation we will always strive to uphold standards of ethical and professional behaviour and where a representative of the force has done wrong, we will investigate and utilise the powers available to us, to ensure we maintain a workforce that continues to reflect the values by which we stand.

“We will always listen to victims of crime and will act on what they tell us, conducting thorough investigations and acting upon those findings to ensure justice is delivered and is seen to be delivered.”
