Police officer ‘framed photo of female officer’s face attached to porn picture’

A serving police officer faces the sack for allegedly framing a mocked-up picture of a female colleague's face stuck onto an image of a porn star.

Sgt Rob Adams is said to have covered the model’s privates with stickers before superimposing the female officer onto her face and framing the mock-up as a Secret Santa present.

A hearing is due to be held on Thursday and Friday, and Sgt Adams could lose his job if the claims are upheld.

He is also accused of upsetting workmates by bombarding them with pornography on a WhatsApp group and making derogatory comments about female cops.

According to the hearing notice, the force allege: “It is alleged that in December 2017 PS Adams created a secret Santa gift by cutting a picture of a naked woman from a pornographic magazine.

“He covered the nipples and genital area with stickers, superimposed a picture of a female colleague (PC X) onto the face and mounted the picture in a frame.”

The force added that between 2017 and 2019 PS Adams was a member of a team WhatsApp group that consisted of around 20 Police Constables.

He is accused of sending pornography, instigating and/or participating in conversations about the appearance of female colleagues, and being involved in, or starting, chats that were derogatory about colleagues.

He is accused of breaching Sussex Police’s Equally and Diversity rules, back in 2017.

Asked to comment by The Sun the officer said he had just woken up and did not want to speak about it.

It is the latest allegation at a station that has been rocked by alleged misconduct.

Last month a hearing in Lewes found Detective Sergeant Paul Elrick guilty of gross misconduct for hitting a colleague's bum with a ruler.

After the officer offered to make him a cup of tea, 48-year-old Elrick pinged her across the ­buttocks with a ruler as she walked past his desk.

He told a junior officer she was “sexy” and smelled “gorgeous”, according to reports.

Robert Talalay, bringing the case against DS Elrick, said the incidents in March and June this year breached the professional standards expected of officers regarding authority, respect and courtesy, The Argus reported.

Gross misconduct charges were proven for the “schoolboy” behaviour but the panel ruled that he could keep his job with a final written warning.
