Bullying in the Police Force

Case history #24

All I ever wanted to be was a police officer. I spent the first nine years of my career dealing with normal police tasks, with the odd dead body under a train, or the Brixton riots, Finsbury Park riots, football duties, etc.

Then one day whilst in CID I met a young man that meeting was to change my life, eventually we started to go out, he was 8 years younger than me we were both single albeit I had been in a violent marriage some years previous.

He eventually told me he was being bullied by a police sergeant I at that time still believed in the system, still thought that you could trust people. That was the biggest mistake of my life!

He told me that the sergeant was making his life hell, he was going to leave the police as he felt threatened by the sergeant's behaviour. I told him he had nothing to fear and that I would stand by him. He made the complaint and I kept my word and stood by him, even making a statement to my Superiors stating that my then boyfriend had reported the sergeant's behaviour to myself.

I was subsequently interviewed by the Complaints section of my force, but then sinister things started to happened. I was in CID and had been for about 12 months, I was due to go on a CID course, it was cancelled, the driving course I was due was also cancelled, when I asked WHY, no reasons were given. My files started to either disappear or I would find used condoms in amongst the papers (hence to say the paperwork had to be re-done).

Myself and the boyfriend decided to get married, In those days you had to inform the Job you intended to marry, I was advised not to marry my boyfriend, I was told in no uncertain terms things would be made difficult. I was threatened physically and mentally (I was asked how would my first husband also a police officer feel, if he knew I was to remarry, certain people that were senior to me had worked with both my ex and myself they knew just how violent my first marriage had been).

Still I stood by my boyfriend on 1st September 83 and we married in December 1983, I got injured on duty, by then I had left CID after receiving numerous threats. I had returned to uniform and was now stationed in the same location as the Sergeant that had bullied my husband.

The night I was injured I was refused to be allowed to attend hospital until some four hours later. I was refused a pension on the grounds it had to be awarded. My husbands life was still made hell, but now I was out of the way. I received visits from senior officers at home, warning me to keep quiet. My pay was cut!

Eventually I went to my MP, there was an agreement, a statement was taken as to what had happened. I was advised I would get my pension, but my husband was to leave the Job, as well as me being pensioned out.

I paid the price for standing by someone who was bullied, I lost my health, the chance of a family, my career and my home. Now years later I am still paying the price, not just physically you see as my health has got worse. I have been asked by various doctors and other agencies WHY didn't your force look after you.

I think we all know why. (The bullies look after each other).

Now after being pushed to the brink, and trying to kill myself, I have realised that you are on your own. Even to this day I do as I was warned KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, OR YOU LOOSE YOUR PENSION.

The Doctors say I have had a breakdown after all the years of abuse they say I am suffering Complex PTSD. They keep asking went did happen when I was in CID.

Even as I write this I still live in fear.

Bullies almost killed me too





Agony ... Douglas Simpson was saved from
two suicide attempts by wife Elizabeth

 

 
 
 
 
 

A COLLEAGUE of a dad driven to suicide after alleged bullying at work last night said he also tried to kill himself — for the SAME reason.

Douglas Simpson claims he took two overdoses after seven years of torment working at North Ayrshire Council.

We told yesterday how tragic Alex Moffat, 45, died at home in Kilwinning, Ayrshire,after reportedly swallowing a cocktail of pills and booze.

Now Douglas, 38 — Alex’s line manager in the council gardens department for 20 years — says he almost suffered an identical fate to his pal. The tearful dad-of-three said: “I was ground down till I could take no more. The council killed Alex and nearly killed me.”

'Torment' ... council offices

Douglas claims his nightmare began after standing up to a boss in September 2003.

 

He said: “He singles out people and doesn’t relent until they quit or are signed off. It starts with no communication, the cold shoulder, not keeping you in the loop for meetings.”

Douglas admits he was suspended FIVE times over work issues and says six years of probes left him crushed.

He swallowed pills and booze in October last year.

He said: “I dreaded work. I thought my family would be better off without me.”

 

Wife Elizabeth, 36, found Douglas and got an ambulance. But after psychiatric help he says the bullying intensified.

He repeated his suicide bid in February, but his wife saved him again. She said last night: “I’m just worried it happens again.”

Alex wrote a suicide note believed to blast North Ayrshire bosses when he was found on October 7.

A council spokeswoman said: “We take bullying allegations seriously. We can’t comment on individual cases.”

South Ayrshire Council set for court battle

THREE men who were sacked from their top jobs will take South Ayrshire Council to court.

The waste management bosses, who were axed last year, are challenging their dismissals.

And they’ll now face off against the council at an employment tribunal later in the year.

Ken Harkin, Eric Monson and Peter Purvis all lost their jobs in the waste management department after a controversial investigation.

The trio were shown the door following a detailed probe into a string of allegations including financial mismanagement, bullying and harassment.

They had been asked to explain why they allowed excessive overtime payments for a handful of employees, including regular 60 hour a week pay packets for two foremen.

They were also quizzed as to why they sanctioned overriding of high tech electronic clocking in technology to authorise overtime payments at the depot in Walker Road.

They each denied any wrong doing, but lost their internal appeals with the council.

But they are determined to pursue their cases and clear their names.



* 21 Aug 2012

THE body of a sacked council boss has been found in woodland near his home just weeks before an appeal was to be heard against his dismissal.

Eric Monson was reported missing by his wife on Wednesday evening when he failed to return to their large farmhouse.

Bullying In Schools last a Lifetime

Equality and Human Rights Commission
August 2010




Pupils have the right to be educated in an atmosphere which is free from fear. Head teachers and others responsible for running schools have a duty to do all that they reasonably can to protect pupils in their charge from intimidation, assault or harassment. This right and this duty are enshrined within documents such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 and the European Convention on Human Rights.

It should also be remembered that schools are subject to the law of the land. Assault, harassment and intimidation are offences, whatever the age of the perpetrator or victim.

Although there is no law which states that Scottish schools must have a specific anti-bullying policy, documents such as "Action Against Bullying", which was distributed to all schools in Scotland in 1992, contain a strong recommendation that they should. This recommendation has been endorsed by local authorities, the Scottish Office and its successor, the Scottish Executive.
