Police officer jailed

November 16, 2012, 3:57 pm

A former Nottinghamshire police officer has been jailed for two years, for two counts of misconduct in a public office.

At a hearing in October, Simon Jones, 32, who moved to South Wales after resigning from the Force in September, had admitted having sexual relationships with two vulnerable victims of crime, including an instance of having sex while on duty.

The former Worksop-based constable was sentenced today (Friday 16 November) at Nottingham Crown Court.

Detective Superintendent Jackie Alexander, head of the Forces Professional Standards Directorate, said: “What Simon Jones did goes against everything that we, as a police force, stand for.

“Jones should have been there to protect vulnerable people and uphold the law, not take advantage of their situation for his own sexual gratification.

“It is right that he has been sent to prison for his conduct; he abused his position of trust and failed to meet the high standards of integrity and professionalism that we expect from all our employees.

“We continue to support Jones victims in dealing with a number of issues that coming forward has meant for them. I hope that todays sentencing shows how seriously the Force deals with the behaviour of this nature and that no one is above the law.
