Two PCSOs on misconduct charge after Met investigation

Two Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) have been charged with conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office.

One officer was also charged with conspiring to steal cannabis, supply cannabis and cocaine and wilfully neglecting to perform his duties.

Both will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on 22 September.

The PCSOs, from a Safer Neighbourhood team in Bromley, were among 12 people charged in a police investigation.

A further nine men and one woman from south east London and north Kent have been charged with a range of offences.

All those charged have been bailed to appear in court from the 22 September onwards.

The investigation was carried out by the Met's Directorate of Professional Standards because two suspects were employees of the force.
