A serving Met officer has been dismissed following a special case hearing on Wednesday, 20 May.

PC Adam Collins, based at Central West BCU, answered allegations that his conduct amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour.

On Thursday, 20 February, at Luton Magistrates’ Court, PC Collins pleaded guilty and was therefore convicted of driving a motor vehicle on a road after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in his breath exceeded the prescribed limit.

PC Collins was disqualified from driving for 14 months. He was fined £346, ordered to pay Crown Prosecution Service costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £34.

It was alleged that in doing so, PC Collins has breached the standards of professional behaviour, namely discreditable conduct.

The panel concluded that his actions amounted to gross misconduct and he was dismissed without notice.
