A police officer has been dismissed after a boozy night out where she allegedly abusing hotel staff and stole a bottle of brandy.

Police Constable Rachel Lewis, who was based in the Met Police's north-west London unit, allegedly breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour after finishing a shift in 2017. She was dismissed after the allegations were proven.

On December 10, 2017, PC Lewis finished her shift and then checked into a hotel room. While off-duty, she ordered some food and a drink from the bar within the hotel.

During the evening, she allegedly swore at the hotel staff and became “increasingly aggressive”, police said.

It is alleged she later went on to steal a bottle of brandy from the hotel’s bar area without permission, and proceeded to drink from it.

The following day, PC Lewis allegedly accessed the internal crime reports database in order to check whether she had been reported.

The Standards of Professional Behaviour sets out the expectations that the police service and the public have towards how police officers should behave.

It states: “Police officers do not abuse their powers or authority and respect the rights of all individuals. Police officers act with self-control and tolerance, treating members of the public and colleagues with respect and courtesy.”
