A FORMER Hampshire police officer faces a misconduct hearing after she allegedly faked threatening messages and fabricated documents, which she then sent to a member of the public.

PC Olivia Lucas is also accused of lying to colleagues and supervisors about having a medical condition and receiving treatment at a specialist hospital.

The constabulary says that the incidents occurred on various occasions between October 2018 and July 2019.

It alleged that she told a member of the public, a retired police officer, that she had received a number of offensive and threatening messages from various serving officers, but it is said that she composed them herself.

She is also said to have created messages pretending to come from an officer within the Professional Standards Department, which she then sent to the member of the public falsely implicating serving officers.

A notice for her misconduct hearing alleges that she sent a copy of a fabricated county court judgement to the retired office accusing a serving officer who she knew.

She is also accused of sending the same person a surveillance log that was supposedly from ‘Imperial Security’ showing another serving officer who she knew was being surveilled whilst off duty, which had been fabricated.

Hampshire Constabulary says that her conduct amounts to gross misconduct.

A hearing has been scheduled to take place next Monday (March 1).
