PCC responds to investigation into gross misconduct by officers involved in Shoreham air show response

08/09/2015

“My first thoughts are for the families and friends of the victims of the Shoreham air crash and how they must be feeling having heard these allegations.

“I also share the dismay expressed to me by police officers about the unnecessary distress this had added to those affected by this terrible tragedy and those involved in the recovery.

“It is deeply disappointing that the professionalism and compassion shown by so many could be overshadowed by the alleged actions of two.

“My role as PCC is to ensure that Sussex Police conduct a swift and thorough investigation into this matter and give the public and officers a clear signal that unprofessional behaviour will not be tolerated.”
