Detective and constable are fired for exchanging vile racist messages

A detective and a constable have been fired after they were caught exchanging ‘repulsive’ racist messages.

Detective Con Danielle Kirby and PC James Mills, who were both North Yorkshire Police officers, sent the vile messages to one another on WhatsApp in 2018 and 2019.

Both officers were suspended by North Yorkshire Police and have since been sacked for gross misconduct.

Announcing the verdict, Deputy Chief Constable Mabs Hussain said: ‘The racist language and sentiments contained in the series of WhatsApp messages are repulsive.

‘It has no place in society, let alone from people who have sworn an oath to uphold the highest standards of fairness, integrity and respect to all people.

‘The evidence in this case was damning, and it is only right that the panel upheld the gross misconduct and the officers have been dismissed from North Yorkshire Police.

‘While I fully acknowledge the damage such cases have on public confidence in the police service both here in North Yorkshire and across the country, I want to make it clear that the police are overwhelmingly a force for good.

‘Where behaviour of this nature is uncovered, we will take robust action.’
