Cop faced sexism probe after calling woman ‘luv’ at a crime scene – The Sun

A COP faced a disciplinary probe and was rapped by chiefs for calling a woman “luv” at a crime scene.

The British Transport Police officer faced “internal management action” for “incivility, impoliteness and intolerance” while on duty.

Bosses found his choice of word — like language used by 1970s Life On Mars cop Gene Hunt — “insensitive”, documents show.

The officer, who is not identified, was among seven BTP officers who faced action for alleged racism and sexism in the past year.

They included one who mocked the English language skills and accent of a work colleague and another who was disciplined for playing pornography in the workplace.

Separately, two Cheshire Police officers were spared the sack despite shocking breaches of professional standards.

Papers released under Freedom of Information laws show that one male cop was given a written warning despite being overheard saying: “Time to stop these Chinese b******s eating dogs.”

Another escaped with a ticking off after telling a colleague she had “a nice a**e”.
