A POLICE officer is due to appear in court this week charged with driving police vehicles while disqualified. 

PC Miles Caffull, a 26-year-old response officer based in Gloucester, is charged with three counts of driving while disqualified and three counts of using a motor vehicle without third party insurance.

Gloucestershire Police said the charges cover the period from May 26 to June 16 2023 and include the use of police vehicles while on duty.

It is alleged that Caffull was disqualified from driving in May 2023, after receiving 12 points of his licence for speeding offences, but had not disclosed these to the force.

He will appear at Worcester Magistrates’ Court for a plea hearing on Thursday.

A force spokesperson said: “PC Caffull was suspended from duty in June this year, when he disclosed the speeding offences and his disqualification to the Constabulary.

“He was charged following an investigation by the Constabulary’s Professional Standards Department and remains subject to ongoing misconduct proceedings.”
