Four West Yorkshire Police officers have been disciplined for sexual misconduct in the past two years — and two of those have been sacked.

All of these offences include some variation of interacting inappropriately with members of the public.

The Huddersfield Examiner has gathered information on police misconduct cases across the country via a series of Freedom of Information requests.

In 2014 and 2015 four officers working for the West Yorkshire Police were disciplined for sexual misconduct, two of whom were dismissed while the other two received final written warnings.

Both officers who were dismissed were male sergeants and both had to leave the force after forming what has been termed as inappropriate relationships with a member of the public.

The information relates to internal police misconduct cases so the behaviour of the officers may not have resulted in criminal charges being brought against them.

All four of the cases relate to the officers in question acting inappropriately towards members of the public. One officer sent texts of a sexual nature while two - the two who were dismissed - formed relationships with the member of the public. All the police officers in question were male.

The two who kept their jobs were both police constables and both received final warnings.

Across the 38 police forces who responded with information to our request 94 police officers were found guilty of sexual misconduct over the past two years while 27 were found guilty of misconduct due to drugs.

One of the most serious of these cases was regarding a Nick Lidstone, a former sergeant in the Cambridgeshire Police Force, who was jailed in late 2014 for 13 sex offences including rape and indecency with a child.

He initially received a sentence of 14 years but this was revised up to 20 years after Attorney General Jeremy Wright deemed that the sentence was unduly lenient.
