Police officer charged with misconduct

A FEMALE police officer has been charged with misconduct in public office and is due to appear in court.

PC Clare Stretton, based at Malinsgate police station in Telford, was suspended from duty in March last year after she was arrested in Shropshire on March 13 on suspicion of misconduct in a public office and has been on police bail while enquiries continue.

The arrest was part of an ongoing Professional Standards inquiry by West Mercia Police and Stretton was charged on Thursday and is due before Worcester Magistrates Court on Friday, February 14.

When i read this i was happy. happy that proffesional standards ARE seeing corrupt west mercia officers brought to book.and also sad in my heart that some officers still think they are untouchable and above the very law which they swore A oath the The Queen to uphold. lets hope this sends out a clearer signal too those like her.

hi. please please tell you what is going on?.. apart from it almost seems a taboo subject now to "critizise" them, we have a world now where wickedness is at an all time high and along with that comes lawlessnes. now the police are taken from members of the public so it stands to reason that if society at large is becoming worse then of course lawlessness within the police force will increase as well?. also as i see the police in many other countries including the USA becoming more powerful and controlling i believe we are all seeing them shift away from government control and answerability to almost a separate entity.
