Victoria Von Wachter represents West Midlands Police in disciplinary hearing.

19 March 2019

Victoria Von Wachter represents West Midlands Police in disciplinary hearing regarding Police Officers sharing extreme porn and race hate videos on Whatsapp.

Ms Von Wachter said  “The videos sent were of an extreme and violent pornographic nature. There were a large number of videos and images exchanged between the two men. Some were exchanged in their own time but others were exchanged when the men were on duty.

One video was of a national anthem with a racist theme. We say the actions of these men amount to gross misconduct." Both Police Officers involved were sacked. Media coverage of the hearing can be found here.
