Evesham PC sacked after sharing personal data


A police officer who disclosed personal information from the force’s computer system has been sacked.

Kate Buesing, a West Mercia Police officer, was found guilty of illegally obtaining and disclosing personal data at Warwick Crown Court in August.

Buesing, of Evesham, who had denied the two charges, was dismissed with immediate effect for gross misconduct following a hearing, the force said.

She had shared the information with a third party outside the force, it said.

Supt Helena Bennett, the force’s head of professional standards, said: “The misconduct hearing found that the behaviour of PC Buesing fell below the standards we expect from our officers and staff and amounted to gross misconduct and it is for this reason she was dismissed without notice.”

The officer, who served for 14 years, had been fined £1,000 by the crown court judge.
