A former Lincolnshire Police Constable will face a virtual special case misconduct hearing for allegedly not taxing his vehicle to avoid payment before denying it to a supervisor.
A hearing will be held for former PC Carl Norman, who was previously based at Lincolnshire Police HQ in Nettleham, at 10.30am on April 3, 2020. The hearing will be held virtually by video/audio conference due to the latest government guidelines regarding essential travel and social distancing.
It is alleged that Norman breached the following standards of professional behaviour:
- Honesty and integrity
- Discreditable conduct
Norman is accused of driving a car on a public road in June 2019, which he knew not to be taxed. It is alleged that he had not taxed his vehicle in a deliberate attempt to avoid payment of a further full months road tax.
He is said to have then informed another officer that he had driven his vehicle to work without tax on June 30, 2019. When questioned about this by a supervisor he denied doing this.
He was also asked about driving a vehicle without tax in a misconduct interview on December 10, 2019. Police said his initial account stated, untruthfully, that he had forgotten to tax his vehicle.
A notice detailing the outcome of the hearing will be published at a later date.
