Serving Met officer, PC Nathan Hind dismissed without notice

Reading Time: 2 minutes

PC Nathan Hind has been dismissed without notice following a proactive investigation by the Met's Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS).

PC Hind, a serving officer, was accused of sexually touching two female officers between October 2019 and July 2020.

The officer, attached to the South West Command Unit, who appeared at a misconduct hearing on 11 and 12 April, is alleged to have breached the standard of professional behaviour in relation to discreditable conduct.

PC Hind was alleged to have touched the officers on four occasions without their consent.

Three of the four incidents took place while the officers were on duty.

After consideration, the panel found the allegations proven at the level of gross misconduct and was dismissed without notice.

He will be added to the barred list held by the College of Policing, meaning he cannot be employed by police, local policing bodies, the Independent Office for Police Conduct or her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary.

Chief Superintendent Elisabeth Chapple, BCU Commander for South West London, said:"No one should be subjected to unwanted sexual behaviour by anyone, let alone a serving officer; it is just totally unacceptable.

"We expect our officers to uphold the highest standards, and we do not want officers in the Met who cannot meet those standards.

"We must also recognise that this case came to light after officers came forward about these incidents and challenged inappropriate actions.

"This case shows we will support those who report wrongdoing by officers, whether the report comes from fellow officers or from members of the public.

"We know that rooting out those who act in this way is crucial to increasing the trust and confidence the public has in the Met, and we will continue to take action against those who do not hold the same values we do."
