Merton Police Constable Dismissed For Gross Misconduct

Hearing told of two traffic offences, including driving at 102mph

A police constable serving in Merton has been dismissed from the force for traffic convictions, including driving at more than 100mph in Scotland.

PC Yasmin Norris, attached to Merton Borough, faced a Metropolitan Police special case hearing on Friday (January 26).

The chair of the hearing heard that on June 27 2017, PC Norris was convicted at Medway Magistrates’ Court in Chatham of allowing someone else, who did not have valid insurance, to drive her BMW car between August 31 and September 1, 2016.

In addition, PC Norris was stopped by Police Scotland on May 19 2017, for driving at 102mph in a 70mph zone.

It was alleged these actions amounted to a breach of the Met’s standards of professional behaviour in respect of, ‘honesty and integrity’ and ‘discreditable conduct’.

Her conduct was proven as gross misconduct and she was dismissed without notice.
