Michael Burgess was fired after lying to his superiors. Mr Burgess said he had completed an arrest enquiry on a man who had failed to answer bail, but this wasn’t true.
After a two day misconduct hearing he was dismissed without notice.
The Directorate of Professional Standards, Detective Chief Superintendent Matt Gardner, said: "Police officers must be honest and act with integrity as a fundamental value to their character. Sadly, this officer has made a false entry on the crime report then compounded the false entry by misleading his supervisor. His conduct has fallen below what the public rightly expect from their police service."
