The temporary Chief Constable of North Yorkshire Police has given his reaction to the guilty verdict of a Police Constable with the force sexually assaulted women while on duty in Selby.
Daniel Fisher has brought disgrace on the Office of Constable.
He abused his position of authority for the sake of his own gratification. This behaviour is completely unacceptable and I congratulate the investigation team who secured the convictions.
On behalf of the force, I commend the victims for having the courage to come forward and report the incidents. We fully understand how challenging this must have been. I hope they can now start to rebuild their lives.
I am satisfied that this was an isolated case and the offender was dealt with professionally and robustly, as the people of North Yorkshire and the City of York would expect.
Residents can be reassured that North Yorkshire Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner have the necessary safeguards in place to root out police officers and members of police staff whose conduct or behaviour falls short of the very high standards demanded by the force.
Daniel Fisher will be brought before a disciplinary hearing at the earliest opportunity at which sanctions include dismissal without notice.
