A police officer has resigned after he sexually assaulted two women at an event in Bristol.

PC Adam Crockett was given an unconditional caution for the two incidents.

Both of these assaults took place when he was off-duty.

The outcome of the hearing at Police HQ in Portishead yesterday was that if he had not resigned he would have been dismissed without notice.

Supt Simon Wilstead, head of Professional Standards, said: “This former officer’s actions were wholly unacceptable and he has no place in the Police Service.

“We thoroughly investigated these offences and both victims have been fully supported throughout.

“Although he resigned prior to the special case hearing he’ll now be placed on the National College of Policing’s Barred List preventing him from working within policing and certain law enforcement bodies.”
