A police officer, who was previously dismissed from British Transport Police following an independent misconduct hearing, has been reinstated following a Police Appeal Tribunal. 

DCI Iain Miller, who was based in London, was previously dismissed from the force after answering allegations that he breached the standards of Orders and Instructions, Duties and Responsibilities, Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Honesty and Integrity.

In 2017, DCI Miller was found to have travelled off duty in first class on a train, using a Force-issued pass outside of the purpose for which it was intended. 

At a tribunal on 14 January 2019 held by the Police Appeals Tribunal, the allegations in respect of Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Honesty and Integrity were set aside and it was found that DCI Millers actions amounted to misconduct and not gross misconduct. DCI Miller has therefore been reinstated at the force and issued with a final written warning.
