A Special Constable has been sacked for failing to pay for items at a canteen in the police training centre in Sulhamstead.

SC Adam Fanospour was dismissed by Thames Valley Police following a public misconsuct hearing yesterday.

His conduct was found to have amounted to gross misconduct in relation to an incident while he was attending a course at the Probationer Development Unit at Sulhamstead Training College between 19 and 23 January 2015.

SC Fanospour, who was based at Abingdon police station, was present at the hearing, which was held before Assistant Chief Constable Nicola Ross at Force Headquarters yesterday.

Det Ch Supt Tim De Meyer, head of the Force’s Professional Standards Department, said: “Thames Valley Police expects its officers to maintain high standards of behaviour whether they are on or off duty.

"SC Fanospour’s failure to pay for items that he took from the training college canteen fell way short of the standards required. His dismissal shows that we will investigate misconduct thoroughly and deal with it robustly.”
