By Jordan Reynolds | Staffordshire | Crime | Published:

A serving Staffordshire Police constable has been dismissed without notice after receiving a criminal caution for two offences of fraud.

PC Craig Davis, 43, who was a response officer based in Stoke-on-Trent, received a criminal caution on March 25, 2019 for two offences of fraud by false representation.

At a special case hearing today in front of the Chief Constable, there was a finding of gross misconduct.

Chief Constable Gareth Morgan from Staffordshire Police said: "Officers and staff are held to a high standard of professional behaviour both on and off duty, which the public rightfully expect.

"It is clear this officer has fallen below the standard expected and the circumstances warrant dismissal without notice."

PC Davis, who has been with Staffordshire Police for 18 years, has been suspended from duty since January 2019.
