A police officer has been sacked for using excessive force during an arrest.
Police constable Edward Frazer was dismissed without notice following a misconduct hearing into an alleged breach of expected standards of professional behaviour.
The neighbourhood response team officer, based in Lowestoft, was found to have breached standards of creditable conduct; authority, respect and courtesy.
He was alleged to have used excessive force when arresting a woman on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence in Lowestoft on April 21 last year.
A hearing overseen by a legally qualified chairman, Steven Evans, at Suffolk Constabulary headquarters in Martlesham Heath, concluded that the officer had breached standards of professional behaviour.
