South Wales police officers dismissed.

Byline: Ruth Mosalski Reporter

THREE police officers have been sacked from their roles after obtaining and sharing confidential information.

A police misconduct hearing took place in December chaired by assistant chief constable Richard Lewis of South Wales Police.

As a result of the hearing, a Gwent Police detective constable along with a PC and sergeant from South Wales Police have all been sacked by their respective forces.

The detective constable was found to have caused a South Wales Police officer to unlawfully access his force's computer systems.

He had wrongfully and unlawfully obtained confi-dential information held on the South Wales Police computer systems.

It was further found the detective constable had passed the confidential information to third parties.

It was also proved he had lied to South Wales Police personnel and to a supervisor in Gwent Police about his involvement in accessing and obtaining confidential information held on South Wales Police computers. The police constable was found to have unlawfully accessed South Wales Police computer systems, accessed them on behalf of others, obtained confidential information from the computer and another officer, and passed confidential information held on South Wales Police computer systems to third parties.

The sergeant was found to have "wrongfully and unlawfully" accessed South Wales Police computer systems, passed that information to both a Gwent Police and South Wales Police officer, and lied about his involvement.
