Health and Injury - Inappropriate Use Of UPP

Post by Beachcomber on Wed Jul 26, 2017 7:28 am

We are aware that some forces apply Unsatisfactory Performance Procedures (UPP) inappropriately in some instances of officers suffering health issues which may include injury on duty.

The 'Mirror' headline (linked below) concerns the tragic death of PC Raymond Thwaites:

A police officer suffering from depression after a cancer scare killed himself while facing a HR dismissal or salary cut due to his poor work ethic.

This item from Kentonline highlights, not only the pressures of the job and its impact on the health of officers, but the consequences that can result from being subjected to unsatisfactory performance procedures:

An under-pressure police officer killed himself weeks after being told he could lose half his salary or face dismissal due to unsatisfactory performance.

Raymond Thwaites, devoted husband and father of two young boys, hanged himself in the garage of his semi-detached home in Ditton on Sunday, April 30.

An inquest heard the 40-year-old Metropolitan police constable, who had served with the force since 2007, had been placed on gardening leave after reporting depression and suicidal thoughts in December shortly after a cancer scare.
