Senior officer to retire after judicially reviewing gross misconduct finding
09 Apr 2018 

Marcus Beale will retire at the
end of the month following a
special case hearing
An assistant chief constable threatened with dismissal over the loss of top-secret documents will be allowed to retire after 30 years’ service.

Marcus Beale admitted breaching the Official Secrets Act at a criminal trial following the theft of classified documents from his car.

The former West Midlands Police (WMP) assistant chief constable and head of counter-terror operations was later also found guilty of gross misconduct and was recommended for dismissal – but proceedings were delayed after he applied for a judicial review.

The force has now confirmed Mr Beale will be allowed to retire on April 28, following a rescheduled special case hearing on April 18.

He was fined £3,500 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court for failing to safeguard the sensitive documents by leaving them in a locked briefcase in his car for five days in May last year. He was immediately suspended following the December court case.

The top secret papers, which included minutes of a meeting of the Executive Liaison Group, have so far not been recovered.

In February, he was found guilty of gross misconduct and was originally due to face a decision on his future on March 28, however, this meeting was rescheduled following the launch of a judicial review.

A WMP spokesperson said: “We can confirm that ACC Marcus Beale indicated his intention to retire after 30 years’ service.

“The application has now been processed by the force and we can confirm that ACC Beale will retire on April 28.

“A further special case hearing is scheduled to take place on Wednesday April 18 before Chief Constable Dave Thompson.”

Hi GGG,I thought the Conservative Party had brought into force legislation,that,"Misconduct in Public Office" would be applicable to serious allegations of misconduct?
So we can presume that Mr Marcus Beale has been on Full pay during his suspension period(eleven months) then decides, ah I'll retire with my full Pension,because there is a likely hood that my Pension could be withheld from me if I fight the allegations,where do you want the flowers darling,over there in the top border please Marcus!
Politicians true to their words,my arse!
