A firearms officer has been dismissed after sending “obscene images” of himself to a member of the public. Police Constable Peter Stallard, of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), took seven inappropriate photos while on duty in December last year, showing police vehicles, his uniform and police equipment. He later sent all the images, along with another obscene selfie, to someone who he had never met in person. PC Stallard was dismissed without notice following a gross misconduct hearing on Thursday (September 28). The panel ruled that the photos make it clear they were taken while the officer was on duty and in uniform at a police station. A MPS spokesperson said: “The panel found the allegations proven and that they had breached the standards of professional behaviour in such a serious way that this amounted to gross misconduct. “The panel determined that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal.”
