Police officer dismissed after misconduct hearing

A police officer has been dismissed without notice after gross misconduct was proven against him.

An accelerated misconduct hearing was held on Thursday, 2 December for PC Murat Isik, attached to the Roads and Transport Policing Command, after he was found guilty at court of four counts of fraud by false representation, two counts of using a false instrument with intent contrary to the Forgery and Counterfeit Act 1981, and three counts of making a false statement to obtain insurance contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1988.

The hearing determined an allegation that his actions breached the standards of professional behaviour in relation to discreditable conduct was proven.

PC Isik was arrested on Monday, 1 June 2020, after information was received that he was involved in a possible insurance fraud. The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards launched an investigation.

He was charged on Friday, 10 July and subsequently pleaded not guilty on 19 October 2020 when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

This year, PC Isik was found guilty on Tuesday, 31 August at Southwark Crown Court and he was sentenced to 20 months’ imprisonment on Friday, 1 October at the same court.

Chief Superintendent Simon Ovens from the Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “PC Murat Isik has already been found guilty of serious offences and jailed for a significant period of time, now it is right that his police career is formally ended. Quite clearly PC Isik demonstrated he did not possess the honesty and integrity the public rightly expect of police officers.”

PC Isik will be added to the Barred List held by the College of Policing. Those appearing on the list cannot be employed by police, local policing bodies (PCCs), the Independent Office for Police Conduct or Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services.
