  1. Officer told misconduct hearing he had resolved the issue. Date - 3rd August 2018 By - JJ Hutber at the Empress State Building 3 Comments A sergeant could face dismissal over allegations he used the police national computer to check if a broken down Mini had a registered keeper. Sergeant Alan Weddell worked in the City before joining a Metropolitan Police fast-track scheme in 2013. After 13 months as a constable he was assigned to Brixton, south London, as a sergeant. In January 2015 the manager of the estate where he lived, Bradley Gartan, approached him for help. A yellow Mini had been parked in the estate’s car park for two years. It had become covered in a thick layer of dust and had four flat tyres. Sgt Weddell admits that during his next shift, he logged onto the police national computer to check whether the vehicle was reported lost or stolen. A Met Police misconduct hearing, held at the Empress State Building, heard that soon after this Mr Gartan confronted a locksmith working on the Mini. He claims he was aghast when the worker showed him paperwork stating Sgt Weddell was the registered owner. Mr Gartan and Sgt Weddell, 48, had a “heated conversation about the moral standard of Mr Weddell pertaining to this car,” it is claimed. The estate manager said: “He came to my office trying to cover his own back [...] worried for his own career. “It was very heated. I’ve got myself extremely wound up over it.” He said he thought Sgt Weddell had offered him a “cash incentive to be quiet” when the officer asked him “what do you want from me Brad?”. Mr Gartan denied a suggestion that he was angry about the situation because he had wanted to give the car to his wife. He said he thought it was “very strange” officers kept coming back to ask for statements after he had filed his complaint about Sgt Weddell. He said the case has given him concerns for his “safety and personal wellbeing”. Sgt Weddell spent 13 months on a training programme at Southwark and became a sergeant in December 2014. The officer said Mr Gartan had approached him with concerns the broken car could be linked with criminality and even joked “there could be a body in there”. “What he asked me at the time seemed straightforward enough. It was a PNC check to make sure there was nothing illegal with the car. “It was in a very bad and broken down state. “He mentioned it’d been there for two years, he would like to find the owner, [he] would ideally like it out of there.” On January 7, Sgt Weddell carried out a VL22 number plate search and saw the car was not lost or stolen but noted the previous owners had lived nearby. He did not carry out any further searches but did complete a V62 DVLA form in the following days and sent it off with a cheque for £25 to cover administration fees. The form was dated January 7 but Sgt Weddell said this is because that was the last date he could be sure the vehicle was abandoned. “It occurred to me I could put the car into my own bay and do some work on it. When [Mr Gartan] was showing me the car he was saying it wanted removing either way. “He was asking to check for the criminality. For me this is ultimately the purpose of the PNC check.” He claimed before submitting the form he ran into Mr Gartan, who instructed him to “get rid of the problem.” “It’s an abandoned vehicle. He doesn’t have to worry about it anymore, it’s resolved the issue,” Sgt Weddell said. Mr Gartan disputes the conversation ever took place. Sgt Weddell has been placed on restricted duties. The hearing continues. View On police Oracle

    VRM n/t PNC

    Thoughts on this scenario please, I'm interested in what powers you think are applicable. You are on patrol and see a high-end unattended vehicle with a personalised plate of 777 (not the real plate) - the front plate is unlawful by reason of its size. You PNC it and it comes back N/T. Unable to stop by the time you return the vehicle is gone so you can't run a VIN check. Assuming you find the vehicle again unattended, what would you do?

    Can one of you look me up on the PNC please?
