May has now U-turned police officers facing gross misconduct charges would not be allowed to retire or resign

A new law came into effect [paywall] on Friday 8 December. And it reversed one of the key promises Theresa May made as Home Secretary.

In 2015, May announced that police officers facing gross misconduct charges would not be allowed to retire or resign. Previously, officers often left the force to avoid facing the potential repercussions of their actions. But the Policing and Crime Act has now reversed this decision. And once again, officers will be allowed to leave while under investigation.
