Misconduct hearings for two former Warwickshire Police officers

TWO former officers at Warwickshire Police have been told by a misconduct panel that they would have been dismissed had they still been in post.

Both cases were heard by misconduct hearing panels at Warwickshire Police Headquarters in Leek Wootton. The panels were chaired by Chief Constable Debbie Tedds.

The panel heard that former special constable, Kyle Daisley, posed as a woman on social media to obtain sexually explicit photographs from people. Daisley claimed he was “having a joke” but the hearing found those involved had been deceived.

Daisley, who was based out of Leamington Police Station, was also found culpable of gross misconduct, and concluded he would have been dismissed, if still serving.




The panel found he had breached the standards of professional behaviour in respect of honesty and integrity, and discreditable conduct.

And a hearing was told former PC Nick Allen accessed police systems for a non-policing purpose and took police equipment home.


Nick Allen served with Warwickshire Police working in Child Abuse, Trafficking and Exploitation Team in Nuneaton.

It found him culpable of gross misconduct and concluded he would have been dismissed, if still serving.

The panel found Allen had breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of confidentiality, orders, and instructions; duties and responsibilities; and discreditable conduct.

In September 2021 the former officer inappropriately accessed police systems.

When police searched his house in August 2022 they found police equipment, including PAVA spray and police documentation, that should have been stored securely at a police station.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Flavell from Warwickshire Police Professional Standards Department said: “If the public are to have confidence in their police force, officers need to always maintain the highest standards of integrity; whether on duty or off duty.

“In both of these cases, the actions of the former officers fell well below these standards and we welcome the decisions of the panels.”

The outcome of this misconduct hearing is subject to appeal.
