A BRADFORD police officer has been sentenced after admitting multiple breaches of a non-molestation order.

Detective Constable Jaswinder Gill, 48, is based in the Bradford District.

He appeared at Sheffield Magistrates Court yesterday (Tuesday, July 2) where he was given a four-month suspended sentence and made the subject of a community order with requirements to carry out 20 hours of rehabilitation and 60 hours unpaid work.

The charges relate to breaches of a non-molestation order between February 2023 and February 2024.

The breaches all occurred while DC Gill was off duty.

Detective Chief Superintendent Nicola Bryar, Head of West Yorkshire Police’s Professional Standards Directorate, said: “DC Gill was told the terms of this civil order, which included not communicating directly with the victim or entering the boundary of her home address.  

“He has repeatedly engaged in behaviour in breach of this order, including committing offences while already under investigation by the Professional Standards Directorate.

"This pattern of behaviour is completely unacceptable and has understandably caused significant distress to the victim.

"I hope that this case demonstrates to victims that we will pursue police perpetrators and bring them to justice.  

“DC Gill is currently suspended from duty and will now be subject to misconduct proceedings.”
