Former Special Constable found guilty of gross misconduct

A former Special Constable at Lincolnshire Police accused of providing false information on a vetting form was found guilty of gross misconduct.

A miscount hearing was held on Friday, November 1, for former SC Laken Hunter, who was based at Lincoln during her time with Lincolnshire Police.

She was accused of providing false information on the form on or around April 10, 2019.

During the hearing at Lincolnshire Police Headquarters in Nettleham, she was found to have breached two Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of allegations relating to Honesty and Integrity and Discreditable conduct.

The breach amounted to gross misconduct.

Chief Constable Bill Skelly, who was the Chair of the special case hearing, found that the former Special Constable would have been dismissed had she still been a service officer.

SC Hunter’s name will be placed on the College of Policing barred list.

There is a right to appeal to a Police Appeals Tribunal.
