A police officer understood to be from Crawley has been accused of gross misconduct.

It was alleged PC Forrest Knight shared information he illegally accessed on police IT systems with a third party and entered false information on the force’s booking on/off system relating to his own duties, said a police spokesman.

He added: “PC Knight is a member of the Operations team. At the time of his suspension, he was based at Sussex House in Brighton but that facility is now closed.”

The hearing will start at 10am on Wednesday (February 24) at Sussex Police Headquarters.
