A group of residents living at Dashwood Court in Hounslow invited their local Safer Neighbourhoods Team, Police Community Support Officers PC Danny Duprey and PC Seni Gulati for a coffee and chat about some of their concerns about anti-social behaviour and petty crime in the local park and nearby roads.
The policing team listened to our tenants’ concerns and assured them that they would be increasing their patrols in the local vicinity especially as they now know what to look out for. PC Gulati said, ‘The more evidence of crime that is reported by the community, the better will be the outcome of policing efforts to help keep everyone safe.’Sterling effort, I think you'll agree. Obviously a credit to the force, and a welcome advertisement for greater diversity in the ranks...
PC Seni Gulati, who was based in Hounslow borough, called for an ambulance after his fiancée had injured herself at a golf venue in Surrey in July last year. He was verbally abusive and used “racially motivated language” towards the call operator and staff at the venue who had assisted his injured wife, a police misconduct hearing heard.
A complaint was made to Surrey Police and Gulati pleaded guilty at Staines Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, January 11 to one count of Malicious Communication.Oh! Oops.
His conviction was considered a breach of Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Discreditable Conduct and of Authority, Respect and Courtesy. The racially motivated language used in the 999 call on July 3 was considered to be a breach in respect of Equality and Diversity.
The hearing held, in public, on Friday, March 10 found the alleged breaches proven and PC Guliti was dismissed without notice.Imagine my shocked face.
