Ballymoney Bubble can exclusively reveal that a misconduct hearing took place this week, resulting in a series of sanctions being imposed on serving police officers within the Causeway Coast & Glens District.
This development comes in the wake of a media request to the PSNI made by local media content creator Geoffrey Moffett earlier today.
Causeway Coast and Glens PSNI had previously faced serious allegations on the popular television BBC program Spotlight last year. The explosive allegations levelled against the force included claims of officers sleeping on duty, neglecting their responsibilities by watching movies instead of conducting patrols, and even failing to respond to emergency calls during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Additionally, the program shed light on a WhatsApp group in which approximately 20 police officers serving in the Causeway Coast and Glens district were found to have engaged in the exchange of sexist, pornographic, and racist messages.
The recent misconduct hearing, prompted by these shocking revelations, has concluded with a range of sanctions being implemented for the officers involved. The exact nature of these sanctions has not been disclosed, but they are expected to reflect the seriousness of the officers’ misconduct.
It is understood that there were no dismissals. When asked a PSNI spokesperson said “There is nothing further to add.”
