It is believed that Between the 16th and 17th February 2019 whilst on duty, PC Battson accessed Cambridgeshire police computer systems without a reason for doing so. 

He did the same between 30th and 31st March 2019. 

On 20th March 2019 whilst off duty, PC Battson accessed the police computer systems in relation to a family incident.

There was no policing reason to do this.

The PC was told by supervisors that he shouldn’t be accessing this data.

It is alleged that these matters individually and/or collectively amount to gross misconduct, namely a
breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour relating to Orders and Instructions; Confidentiality
and Discreditable Conduct.
