A POLICEMAN has undergone extra training after being suspended for using racist language.
The PC, who has not been named, is now back on the beat in Ellesmere Port after being suspended in October 2003.
The investigation into the allegation by Cheshire Constabulary lasted six months.
A force spokesman last night said the police officer was now back at work after a diversity training programme which addresses race, age, gender and sexual orientation.
At the time of the allegations, Cheshire Constabulary insisted the suspension was not linked to the BBC documentary, The Sleeping Policeman.
The programme exposed racist behaviour at the police's training academy in Warrington.
Six officers including Cheshire PC Steve Salkeld and PC Tony Lewin, who lived in Warrington, resigned in the wake of the documentary.
Chief Constable Peter Fahy said racist behaviour was "abhorrent".
