  1. Northumbria announces decision to challenge tribunal decision to give PC job back. Northumbria Police: Fighting tribunal decision Date - 12th April 2019 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle 1 Comment A police force is to challenge a decision to give an officer her job back after she was sacked for an “abhorrent” racist slur on a Christmas party night out with colleagues. Northumbria Police originally dismissed PC Katie Barratt last year following a misconduct hearing after she was said to have used the phrase f****** p*** about staff at a Newcastle takeaway while waiting for a pizza. But last month she turned the tables at a Police Appeal Tribunal – winning a reinstatement when a panel agreed the force could have used a less severe punishment and downgraded the “unreasonable” ruling to a final warning. Straight after the tribunal the force said it would consider its options, and this afternoon Deputy Chief Constable Darren Best announced it would ask for a judicial review of the panel's controversial decision. DCC Best said the force would also be seeking a court order to prevent PC Barratt returning to work during the proceedings or receive the reported £15,000 back salary the tribunal directed be paid. He said: "First and foremost, the language used by the officer that night was abhorrent. "I want to be absolutely clear that racist language is completely unacceptable. "I am extremely disappointed by the appeal tribunal's decision. "As a force we are committed to challenging this and will therefore be applying for judicial review.” DCC Best said it should be stressed that the appeal tribunal was independent of Northumbria Police. He added: "I want to assure the public that the actions of one individual are not representative of the officers and staff who display unwavering professionalism and commitment every single day, as they protect the communities we serve and in doing so they have my full and absolute support." Mr Best praised PC Barratt's colleague who reported what she had said on the night out, and which was not heard by the takeaway staff. The first misconduct hearing was told she made the derogatory comments to colleagues and they were not heard by the staff in the Spice of Punjab. Senior officers were informed about what she had said on the night out in 2017, and an investigation was launched. PC Barratt was sacked after a misconduct hearing at Houghton police station in Tyne and Wear in June last year with the force arguing her comments could “seriously damage” the reputation of the service. Her barrister Guy Ladenburg said the slurs, while an “abomination”, were “not the worst kind of racism”.

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
