Fedster + 1,307 Posted July 20, 2020 Share Posted July 20, 2020 A Greater Manchester Police officer is suspected of emblazoning a colleague's belongings with a swastika. Date - 20th July 2020 By - Chloe Livadeas The force said it has sparked an "internal investigation" after the "disgraceful and disgusting act", which has been declared a hate crime. Detectives and professional standards are treating the incident "incredibly seriously" after the unnamed officer began their shift yesterday (19 July) to find the symbol etched onto their items. Assistant Chief Constable Mabs Hussain said: "I can wholeheartedly say that we are appalled that one of our employees felt that this behaviour was acceptable. "A colleague has been subjected to a hate crime and there is no place for behaviour like this in GMP or policing nationally, and it's being treated incredibly seriously. "We serve one of the most culturally diverse areas in the United Kingdom and we're incredibly proud to have a diverse workforce to serve and represent our communities. "It is absolutely unacceptable that an officer has been faced with such an atrocity during their shift and we're urging any officers or staff with any information to report it."
