A police detective constable has been dismissed without notice after being handed a restraining order for harassment.
DC Debra Mackrell of the Met’s central east command unit, which includes Tower Hamlets, was found to have breached standards of professional behaviour in respect of discreditable conduct after a special case hearing.
The hearing concluded this amounted to gross misconduct.
Mackrell was found guilty of harassment at Inner London Crown Court on September 24 last year.
She was found not guilty of stalking following the trial, which began on September 16.
