PC York allegedly used the Police National Computer (PNC) to check the registered keeper of a vehicle and then gave this information to his ‘acquaintance’, the acquaintance wasn’t authorised to see this information.

PC Yorks’ action was to a breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of: Discreditable Conduct.

On 11 March 2016, PC York accepted a caution offered by Essex Police for the offence committed on 7 March 2015 pursuant to s.55 of the Data Protection Act.

After seeing the evidence against PC York, the Met’s disciplinary panel ruled that a final written warning was “appropriate sanction” in this case.
