PLOD OF THE YEAR FOR
2019

Dorset Police Gravy Train

THE AWARD GOES TO

Sergeant Robbie Jephcott 2343

Sergeant Robbie Jephcott 2343 goes off the rails in a shameful, ego fuelled display of aggression toward a driver who refuses to follow his unlawful demands.

Here is a list of everything the officer did wrong:

  • 01 - Insisted the driver step out of his vehicle when he was under no obligation to do so
  • 02 - Threatened to smash the drivers window because he explained himself
  • 03 - Threatened to ticket the driver punitively
  • 04 - Lied about his suspicion the driver had consumed alcohol
  • 05 - Falsifying an obstruction of police charge
  • 06 - Assaulted the driver
  • 07 - Lied about checking the tint on the windows as a means to get the driver to open the door
  • 08 - Had no equipment to test the opacity of the windows
  • 09 - Attempted to stop the driver from filming under threat of arrest
  • 10 - Refers to the Road Traffic Act as "the Road Traffic Law"
  • 11 - rrested the driver without necessity (or lawful reason)
  • 12 - Placed the driver in handcuffs (maliciously) despite the driver not resisting
  • 13 - Misstated the caution: omitted "Anything you do say may be given in evidence"
  • 14 - Told the passenger he could not leave the vehicle, thereby falsely imprisoning him
  • 15 - Listed "potentially being intoxicated" as an offence
  • 16 - Suggested that his training elevated his 'sergeant' status to Inspector level.
  • 17 - Suggested the driver was preventing the officer from confirming who he was
  • 18 - Refused to state what station he was attached to
  • 19 - Refused to tell the driver if he had been filmed
  • 20 - Incapable of understanding the difference between delay and detention
  • 21 - Walks off petulantly when the driver makes a statement in his defence
