David France now faces a misconduct hearing by the force.
He is accused of discreditable conduct, over his social media postings.
The charge against Mr France reads: “It is alleged that on or between 10 October 2017 and 5 November 2019 and whilst a serving police officer, former officer 1005 France sent a total of 2,719 ‘tweets’ from his personal Twitter handle.
“A proportion of the ‘tweets’ are considered to be abusive and/or offensive and/or inappropriate in nature and contained language concerning protected characteristics, including gender, disability and race.
“The ‘tweets’ were all publicly viewable and some were posted whilst former officer 1005 France was on duty.”
The misconduct hearing will take place at the North Yorkshire Police Headquarters between 9 and 12 August.
