Two UK Police Officers Fired After Leaving Voicemail on Mother’s Phone Hoping Child ‘Gets Raped’

After PC Mayo replied “yes… and get butt raped” the sound of both officers apparently laughing could be heard on the recording.

Chief Inspector Mark Edgington, of the Professional Standards Department at Avon and Somerset Police, said: “Both officers used appalling and horrific language about a vulnerable missing child and their family.

“There are no excuses for their behaviour and their actions are not reflective of our force or the officers and staff who work extremely hard every day to safeguard and protect vulnerable people.

“The officers failed to treat the child and their family with respect and undermined public confidence in the force.”

Testimonies considered at the misconduct hearing described PC Dexter as a “hard-working, caring and valued” officer, who had been commended for a “lifesaving intervention” at the scene of a stabbing in 2014.

Pc Mayo was described as an “outstanding, hard-working and compassionate” officer who had a previous role in overseas aid.

Speaking before the hearing, PC Dexter told The Daily Mail: “I still to this day can’t believe it was me who said those things.

“I am deeply sorry for the comments I made – I never intended the upset caused to the family.”

PC Mayo told the paper: “I have thought about this incident every day since. I’m so disappointed in myself.”
