A Met Police officer has been sacked after he sent dirty texts and a photo to a woman who came to the station feeling vulnerable asking for help.
PC Farouk Abubakar was dismissed “without notice” after he was found to have committed gross misconduct by an internal investigation.
The woman had gone to Kingston Police station on June 21 in 2017 when the officer was on duty with the Met’s South West Borough Command Unit.
After she left the office, Abubakar messaged her “from his own personal phone”.
The correspondence included messages of a “sexualised” nature and a photograph, an investigation has found.
The Met Police said the former police constable appeared at the misconduct hearing which concluded on October 15.
A spokesperson said he faced allegations of breaching the Met’s Standards of Professional Behaviour regarding “honesty and integrity” and “equality and diversity”.
The officer also failed to meet standards on “authority, respect and courtesy”, “orders and instructions” and “discreditable conduct”.
They said, “The Chair of the hearing concluded that all of the above allegations, with the exception of the professional standard of equality and diversity, were proven at the level of gross misconduct.”
