Gross misconduct proved against former police sergeant

A former Essex Police sergeant has been found to have committed gross misconduct following a hearing.

Former PS Tim Littman was subject to an accelerated misconduct hearing on Thursday February 22.

It was alleged the former PS had breached the standards of professional behaviour in the areas of authority, respect and courtesy, and equality and diversity.

The allegations concerned messages sent by former PS Littman in a group chat which were assessed as derogatory, sexist and misogynistic towards colleagues.

The allegations were found proven following the hearing, which was chaired by Chief Constable Ben-Julian Harrington.

The hearing ruled PS Littman would have been dismissed if he was still serving.
