A Nottinghamshire Police Special Constable was recently relieved of his duties following the unapproved viewing of body-worn camera evidence connected to the horrific assaults in Nottingham. Both 19-year-olds Grace O’Malley-Kumar and Barnaby Webber were fatally stabbed while making their way home following a night out. The expelled officer, a volunteer for the police, had access to video that showed the victims getting medical attention both before and after they passed away.

On August 31 of last year, the incident happened, and there is no proof that anyone downloaded or shared the video. But the officer was fired after an expedited misconduct process that took place behind closed doors since it was determined that his acts constituted a major violation.

This information was made public amid continued criticism of Nottinghamshire Police’s response to the attacks, which has been heightened by the recent misconduct hearing of one of the officers. Officer Matt Gell was given a final warning for violating confidentiality requirements by text-messaging details of the attacks. The message exposed inconsistencies in policy and communication within the police by falsely implying that the event was a terror attack.

Steve Cooper, the deputy chief constable, stressed that no cops had posted any pictures or recordings of the attacks. But worries about the leak of private information continue, which is why the police force has conducted extensive investigations and implemented disciplinary measures.

Attorney General Victoria Prentis, meanwhile, has declared her intention to contest the lenient punishment imposed on the offender, Valdo Calocane, who was handed an indefinite hospital order following his admission of manslaughter on the pretext of reduced culpability.

Furthermore, when the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) begins looking into the force’s past dealings with Calocane and how they handled the case, Nottinghamshire Police will come under even more scrutiny. The relatives of the victims have filed complaints, calling for openness and responsibility in the search for justice.
