He was dismissed for breaching the standards of professional behaviour for honesty and integrity and discreditable conduct while at the probationer development unit at Sulhamstead Training College.

Mr De Meyer, Head of the Force’s Professional Standards Department, said: “Mr Fanospour’s failure to pay for items that he took from the training college canteen fell way short of the standards required.

“His dismissal shows that we will investigate misconduct thoroughly and deal with it robustly.”
