DISGRACED Colin Andrews has been formally dismissed by Humberside Police.
5 JUNE 2015 | BY HDMDLonghorn FOR HULL DAILY MAIL
The former chief superintendent, 58, was jailed for 12 months in March this year after a campaign of harassment against two women.
The force, which stopped paying Andrews his salary on the day he was jailed, today confirmed he had been dismissed following a misconduct hearing.
A statement read: “Police employee Colin Andrews was dismissed from Humberside Police at a misconduct hearing held at Police Headquarters on Wednesday, June 3.
“In accordance with the organisation’s internal procedures, Mr Andrews has been provided with a right of appeal.”
Andrews, who was one of the force’s most highly decorated officers, retired as a chief superintendent in January 2012, before taking up a post as business manager of the Humberside Police criminal justice unit.
During his 37-year career with the force, Andrews helped to solve the murder of Hessle driving instructor Keith Slater – bringing his killer to justice 29 years after he was stabbed on his doorstep in 1988.
But his trial heard he was a “Jekyll and Hyde” character who carried out a campaign of harassment against two vulnerable women.
Andrews, of Brough, had denied any wrongdoing but was convicted by a jury of witness intimidation, aggravated stalking, harassment and assault in January following a six-week trial at Manchester Crown Court.
He was cleared of further charges of rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and another assault.
