It has always been the intention of the Metropolitan Police Service to hold the misconduct hearing as soon as possible. This was delayed pending the outcome of the trial. Papers were served on Pc Harwood in November 2010 informing him of the intention to proceed to a gross misconduct hearing.
Following the conclusion of the trial of Pc Harwood, we will now need to review the misconduct case against him, as required by the Home Office guidance.
