Concerns over cops' behaviour

More than 100 police officers have left the PSNI under a cloud since 2006 after serious disciplinary charges were brought against them, Sunday Life can reveal.

Earlier this month it emerged that three officers had quit the force after failing drugs tests.

But today Sunday Life can reveal that 115 officers have either been sacked, forced to resign or have quit while facing disciplinary charges in the last five years.

Figures obtained by this newspaper reveal that 85 of those who left the force were facing disciplinary charges relating to their “integrity”.

And a further 95 officers are currently awaiting the outcome of hearings dealing with integrity issues.
