Rugby trainee police officer dismissed for gross misconduct

Rugby Editorial 25th Jan, 2023   0

A DISCREDITED Rugby trainee police officer has been dismissed after she was found to have breached standards of professional behaviour.

Suki Basi, who was a Trainee Detective Constable based in Rugby CID, was dismissed for gross misconduct following an accelerated misconduct hearing.

She accessed information on police systems without a lawful purpose, and passed it on to a third party who was under investigation.

She was found to have breached the standards of professional behaviour in the categories of confidentiality; honesty and integrity; and conduct.




Basi was originally dismissed by the Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police in 2021 following a misconduct hearing, but she appealed this and was granted a new misconduct hearing chaired by Chief Constable Noble from Staffordshire Police.

This hearing upheld the decision of the original misconduct hearing.


Det Supt Jill Fowler, Warwickshire Police’s Head of Professional Standards, said: “As police officers we have access to a lot of sensitive information. It is important we only access this data when there is a policing purpose for doing so.

“Suki Basi failed to do this and discredited herself and the force. The public understandably expect and deserve better.”
