A Metropolitan Police sergeant has been given a final written warning after making an insulting comment about a transgender woman.

Timothy Brown, attached to the Central West Command Unit, had breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour, a public misconduct hearing found.

He was found to have committed three acts which amounted to unprofessional conduct, all in July 2017.

The officer was found to have made a “derogatory remark” about the transgender woman while he also undermined another sergeant by calling into question her ability to carry out her duties.

The officer also referred to a member of public in a sexual manner, the panel had heard.

Allegations that he had breached Standards of Professional Behaviour, in respect of equality and diversity were not proven.

A police statement released on Friday said: “The panel found that he had breached standards of professional behaviour in respect of authority, respect and courtesy, and discreditable conduct. The three allegations were found proven at the level of misconduct.”
