MK Police Superintendent Suspended

The Thames Valley Police superintendent for Milton Keynes has been suspended for allegations of misconduct.

Deputy Chief Constable, John Campbell, Thames Valley Police said:

"Thames Valley Police’s Professional Standards Department is currently investigating allegations of misconduct into Superintendent Gez Chiariello, Local Police Area Commander for Milton Keynes.

The alleged breaches of standards are in relation to Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct and have been determined as meeting the threshold in respect of gross misconduct.

As a result, Superintendent Chiariello has been suspended from duty with immediate effect.

As with all breaches of standards that are assessed as meeting the gross misconduct threshold, the matter will now be taken to a misconduct hearing. The facts will be heard by a panel, chaired by a legally qualified independent chairperson, who will determine if there is a case to answer for gross misconduct and if there is, the appropriate sanction to be applied.

Whilst the misconduct process is ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further."

Acting Superintendent Vince Grey has been appointed as Local Police Area Commander.

A date is yet to be scheduled for the misconduct hearing.
