A POLICE officer based in Ealing has been sacked following allegations of sexual harassment by two female colleagues.
The 40-year-old man was dismissed last week for gross misconduct following an investigation by the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) - which investigate complaints against the conduct of Metropolitan Police officers.
Two women made an allegation against him in September 2010 claiming the police constable subjected them to 'sexual touching, assault and harassment'.
Commander Peter Spindler, in charge of the DPS, said: "We do not want people in this organisation who believe they can victimise their colleagues.
"This officer's offensive behaviour has let everyone down - the people he worked with and the public he was paid to serve. It is only right that he has been dismissed from service."
The women's complaints were investigated by the DPS and the officer was arrested but no further criminal action was taken against him. Instead he sat before an internal misconduct panel which ordered his dismissal on Thursday last week (22) based on the evidence.
