Clare is regularly instructed to prosecute Police misconduct cases across the country and has recently successfully prosecuted an Officer from the Metropolitan Police accused of drink driving and then lying about it (the officer was dismissed for gross misconduct) and a police officer from Dorset who used the Police National Computer to check personal details of himself, family members, without any reporting of a crime. The panel dismissed the officer for gross misconduct.
