Does this officer really need sensitivity training???
Well, this time they call it management advice....
He may also face legal action from serial offender Glen Francis whose complaint was upheld by a disciplinary hearing.
Francis, 35, flew into a rage when officers called to arrest his girlfriend at his home, hurling a bowl of pasta at a policewoman guarding the hallway.
It was claimed to have held her captive and threatened to shoot her before she escaped from the house in North Shields, Tyne and Wear.
When police back-up arrived, he was said to have lunged at them with a six inch knife before he was shot twice with a Taser gun.
Even then he pulled metal barbs from his skin before barricading himself inside the kitchen where he smashed the walls with a hammer and shouted: "The first copper in here is getting f****** killed, come on, I only want one of you."
Trained negotiators were called in and he was eventually taken into custody after officers stormed the room and Tasered him a further three times.
He complained that after he had been stripped searched, the sergeant referred to him as a c***.
An investigation by Northumbria Police Professional Standards Department (PSD) found the sergeant guilty of misconduct for using the swear word.
A PSD report states that the sergeant was pushed into making an "inappropriate comment" following a tirade of abuse from Francis.
It said: "The police officer openly admits he made the inappropriate comment about Mr Francis after the strip search had been conducted.
"He admits this was unprofessional, although it was never his intention for Mr Francis to hear this comment. He stipulates this comment was a result of the violence and abuse from Mr Francis."
The sergeant, who has not been named has been ordered to undergo to attend a "management advice course".
