Following a special misconduct hearing chaired by the Chief Constable Francis Habgood today (4 March 2018), an officer has been dismissed from the Force without notice.
PC Rebecca Barnett was dismissed from the Force as her conduct amounted to Gross Misconduct in that she breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour in relation to Discreditable Conduct.
On 10 June 2017 whilst off duty, PC Barnett became involved in an argument with a woman, and a scuffle ensued.
PC Barnett then grabbed the woman, and bit her on the nose, causing a significant injury, which required surgery and has left the victim with permanent scarring.
On 28 February, PC Barnett pleaded guilty to a charge of GBH section 20 without intent at a hearing at Oxford Crown Court.
PC Barnett will be sentenced on 11 June.
“PC Barnett’s actions were very much below the standards expected of an off duty police officer.
“Barnett has been convicted of a violent offence and it would be completely unacceptable for her to continue in her duties protecting the public as a serving police officer.”
