Misconduct hearing after police officer’s drink driving with knife

A Humberside Police officer will face a special case misconduct hearing next week over allegations of drunk driving and carrying a knife.

On September 13, 2018 PC Tyler-Jones appeared at Grimsby Magistrates Court where he pleaded guilty to, and was subsequently convicted and sentenced for, driving over the limit.

The proportion of it in his breath, namely 87 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit.

It was also noted that he had with him, without good reason or lawful authority in a public place, a lock-knife.

The alleged conduct amounted to a breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Discreditable Conduct contrary to Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012.

The hearing of PC 2321 Tyler-Jones is set to take place at The Old Magistrates Court in Goole on Tuesday, December 4 at 1pm.
