Does the punishment fit the crime?

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I posted in April & November about the case of two senior police officers from North Yorkshire up on a disciplinary charge for trying to help relatives get jobs in their own force by leap-frogging thousands of other potential recruits.

The BBC reports today that the Deputy Chief Constable, Adam Briggs, has been found guilty of misconduct. His punishment is ‘management advice’. Though exactly who he’ll get the advice from is unclear since his boss, Chief Constable Grahame Maxwell is also up on the same charge, although his case is still to be heard.

Does the punishment fit the crime, you decide…
