Details of forthcoming and previous hearings.
We demand the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and integrity from our officers and staff. Where those standards are not met, consideration may be given to starting misconducting proceedings. We are committed to transparency and accountability, therefore we will publish the outcomes of misconduct hearings.
Hearings are almost always held wholly or partly in public. This page will be updated with forthcoming hearings along with details on how to apply to attend, although certain conditions and exclusions may apply.

Results of misconduct hearings
May 1 2018 - former PC 22075 Daniel Neligan
At a Gross Misconduct Hearing which occurred on Tuesday 1 May, former Police Constable 22075 Daniel Neligan was found to have committed gross misconduct and would have dismissed from Hampshire Constabulary without notice.
During the course of the Hearing, the Panel, chaired by Gabrielle Posner, Legally Qualified Chair, considered evidence which had been presented in relation to one misconduct charge, namely that PC Neligan made false, misleading and inaccurate written statements in an operational context.
Having taken into account all the evidence which was presented, the Panel found the allegation to have been proven as Gross Misconduct with PC Neligan’s conduct representing a breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour for police officers in respect of Honesty and Integrity and Discreditable Conduct.
The outcome was that Daniel Neligan would have been dismissed from Hampshire Constabulary without notice had he not resigned prior to the hearing.
March 15 2018 - PC 21915 James Street
At a Gross Misconduct Hearing which concluded on Thursday 15 March 2018, Police Constable 21915 James Street was found to have committed gross misconduct and was dismissed from Hampshire Constabulary without notice.
During the course of the Hearing, the Panel, chaired by Caroline Carberry QC, considered evidence which had been presented in relation to three misconduct charges, namely that PC Street stole cash to the value of £2,106 from the temporary evidence store at Southampton Central Police Station, that PC Street stole £50 and 50 Euros from a bag handed to him by a member of the public and that PC Street, while on duty, sent offensive messages about a colleague to a group of fellow officers.
Having taken into account all the evidence which was presented, the Panel found the first two allegations to have been proven as Gross Misconduct with PC Street’s conduct representing breaches in the Standards of Professional Behaviour for Police Officers in the strands of Honesty and Integrity.
PC Street admitted the third allegation and the Panel concluded it amounted to misconduct, which is a breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Equality and Diversity and Authority, Respect and Courtesy. There was no separate sanction outcome in respect of this finding.
