Investigation into Merseyside Officers

Investigations into two Merseyside police officers will be carried out by the force under the direction and control of the Independent Police Complaints commission.

One investigation will look into claims a Sergeant threatened to arrest a woman while on patrol in Liverpool unless she performed a sex act on him. The officer is also being investigated over the handling of police property.

The second investigation will look at allegations involving a Detective Constable who is said to have asked a victim of domestic violence to perform a sex act on him, and then continued to contact her in an inappropriate manner over a prolonged period of time.

Both investigations will look at other  potential victims and examine whether Merseyside Police has adequate systems to identify officers abusing their powers for sexual gratification.

Both officers have been suspended from duty by Merseyside Police.
