  • Mr Kemp failed to disclose the affair, breaking professional conduct standards 

A married deputy chief constable who was caught on a doorbell camera arranging an affair with a sergeant has been spared the sack after apologising. 

Nev Kemp, 48 – a deputy chief constable at Surrey Police – organised a hotel meet-up with Sergeant Rachael Johnson, 38, over the phone, but their conversation was picked up by the camera and heard by her husband, fellow police sergeant Ross Johnson. 

Mrs Johnson, who worked on personnel matters and criminal justice at Surrey Police, was understood to have been honest about her relationship with Mr Kemp after being confronted by her husband.

Mr Kemp failed to disclose the affair to bosses over the risk it could lead to a conflict of interest, leading to a disciplinary panel concluding he breached standards of professional behaviour. 

But today it was revealed he was given a chance and handed a final written warning after a misconduct hearing that was held behind closed doors. 

A Surrey Police statement said the warning would remain in place for two years.

It said: ‘On Monday 29 March an independent panel concluded that Deputy Chief Constable Nev Kemp did breach standards of professional behaviour by not disclosing a workplace relationship that had the potential to cause a conflict of interest, as required by national and local policy.

‘The independent panel was made up of a legally qualified chair, a member of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and an independent member.

‘He has been given a final written warning, which will be valid for two years.

‘Following the private meeting, a period of time is given to review the panel decision which has now passed.’ 

Chief Constable Gavin Stephens said: ‘This is a proportionate outcome. DCC Kemp did fall short of the standards expected of a senior police officer, but through his own admission has accepted his responsibility and has apologised for his actions.

‘He remains in his role and is committed to serving the public of Surrey.’
