Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is reportedly investigating one of its own officers after a swastika was etched onto a colleague’s belongings.
An officer arrived for his or her shift on Sunday only to find a swastika emblazoned on their items in an act the force described as “disgraceful and disgusting”.
Assistant Chief Constable Mabs Hussain said: “I can wholeheartedly say that we are appalled that one of our employees felt that this behaviour was acceptable.
“A colleague has been subjected to a hate crime and there is no place for behaviour like this in GMP or policing nationally, and it’s being treated incredibly seriously.
“It is absolutely unacceptable that an officer has been faced with such an atrocity during their shift and we’re urging any officers or staff with any information to report it.”
