A RETIRED police officer is accused of 'acting inappropriately' for more than a decade towards four younger female colleagues.

PC Alan Nisbet, who retired in November, will now face the heads of the force at a misconduct hearing over the phone.

This week he will give his version of events against the claims that he treated four women with a 'lack of respect and courtesy' for more than 10 years between 2008 and 2019.

If found guilty, the former Thames Valley Police officer, who was last based in Milton Keynes, will have breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour expected of him in relation to the clauses Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct.

As a result his name could be put on the police black list and he will never be able to work for any police force again – including as a volunteer.

Due to coronavirus the hearing will take place over the phone in private.
