A member of the public had a ‘sexual relationship’ with a police community support officer.
Over the course of two years, a police community support officer had a sexual relationship with a member of the public.
During the course of an internal investigation into the situation, the PCSO, who worked for Cheshire Police, retired. During a disciplinary hearing last month, he was formally dismissed.
PCSO met the woman with whom he had a connection throughout the “course of his duties,” according to Cheshire Police.

According to the force, the relationship started in 2016 and concluded in 2018.
Last month, a misconduct hearing was held. “Breach of the principles of professional behavior relating to Authority, Respect and Courtesy, and Discreditable Conduct,” the police department wrote in a summary of the hearing.
“A Police Community Support Officer had a sexual and inappropriate contact with a female he met while on duty between 2016 and 2018.” During the investigation, one of the staff members left. Result: Dismissed (if the employee hadn’t already retired).”
Cheshire police have declined to comment further on the incident.
