A Milton Keynes' police officer has been dismissed from the Force for gross misconduct - after he pleaded guilty to child porn related offences at a previous court hearing.

On 9 February at Luton Magistrates’ Court, Police Constable Leigh Morris pleaded guilty to three offences of making indecent photographs/pseudo-photographs of a child, one offence of possession of an extreme pornographic image, and one offence of possessing a prohibited image of a child.

The five charges related to the interrogation of PC Morris’ computers and mobile phone found at his address after he was arrested on 7 July last year.

It was alleged that Police Constable Morris breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour as set out in Regulation 3 and the Schedule 2 to the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012 in respect of ‘Discreditable Conduct’.

The matters amount to gross misconduct.

Det Ch Supt Chris Ward, head of Thames Valley Police Professional Standards Department, said: “A serving police officer receiving a criminal conviction for possessing such offensive material brings discredit on the police and undermines the public confidence in the police service.

“Therefore, following today’s special case misconduct hearing chaired by the Chief Constable Francis Habgood at Thames Valley Police Headquarters, Kidlington, PC Morris was dismissed from the Force without any notice.”
