Cleveland Police: Sean Price behaviour 'unacceptable'

As a police officer, and particularly as a chief constable, Sean Price's behaviour and attitude over this matter was completely unacceptable and the sanction imposed is wholly appropriate.

His actions have seriously undermined his reputation and his credibility.

I am pleased that the witnesses in this process have found the courage and strength to make a stand and challenge the most senior person in the force.

– Stuart Drummond, Chair of Cleveland Police Authority
