A former Lancashire Police inspector has been given a two-year community order after he pleaded guilty last month to two counts of common assault.
Mustaq Patala, 33, of Pleckgate, Blackburn must carry out 180 hours of unpaid work and attend a community domestic violence programme.
The incidents relate to offences against his wife dating from 2009 to November 2010. Patala resigned from his position at Greenbank Police Station last month.
Assistant Chief Constable Andy Rhodes said: "They should feel reassured that whoever you are, if you commit crime in Lancashire then we will seek to bring you to justice."
My comment: Justice, 180 hours community service, is that what they call justice nowadays?
