Misconduct hearing conditions of entry


Public misconduct hearing – A/Insp Iain Kane

A public misconduct hearing will take place in connection with a Thames Valley Police officer.

The hearing will take place at Thames Valley Police’s headquarters in Oxford Road, Kidlington, between Monday 17 February and – Wednesday 19 February 2020, in front of legally qualified chairperson, Mr John Bassett.

The hearing is in connection with incidents between 7 March and 6 August 2019. A/ Insp Kane is alleged to have made an inconsistent report of robbery to another police force before withdrawing his support for it.

He is also alleged to have made a dishonest insurance claim in relation to the report of robbery, as well as dishonestly exaggerating an amount of money owed to him from previous management of a police station tuck shop.

It is alleged A/ Insp Kane breached the Standards of Professional behaviour in relation to Honesty and Integrity and Discreditable Conduct, and if proven could amount to gross misconduct, for which a dismissal would be justified.

Available space will limit numbers of the public attending to six people including members of the media. If you wish to attend you will be required to pre-register by midday on Thursday 13 February by emailing the Professional Standards Department at misconducthearings@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk.  Anyone who has not pre-registered will not be allowed into the hearing.

No photography, audio or video recording or filming, is allowed anywhere on police premises and attendees may be searched prior to entry.

Please note there are no parking or refreshment facilities available at police headquarters.
