A SUFFOLK police officer who faced an internal inquiry into allegations of misconduct has resigned.
Pc Steve Mitchell, who was based at Stowmarket, resigned prior to a hearing into two incidents which were alleged to have happened in Stowmarket in April last year.
It is understood he resigned prior to a three-day hearing scheduled to be held this month.
Mr Mitchell, of Stewart Young Grove, Kesgrave, was suspended shortly after the incidents took place while Suffolk Constabulary carried out an investigation into the matter.
As a result of the investigation, a file was sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which subsequently decided not to take the matter no further.
The allegations were then referred to the Police Complaints Authority.
