A chief constable accused of using his influence to recruit the daughter of a high-ranking former colleague is to be sacked.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission will disclose the outcome of an investigation into the conduct of Sean Price, the suspended chief of Cleveland Police, on Friday.
An internal disciplinary hearing concluded on Thursday night, and it is understood Price has been found guilty of gross misconduct.
He was investigated following allegations about his role in recruiting the daughter of the former police authority chairman, Dave McLuckie, to a civilian post.
It was claimed Price used "undue influence" to get her the job.
Mr Price has also been investigated for criminal matters as part of the wide-ranging Operation Sacristy inquiry into alleged police misconduct.
