A police officer with the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, has admitted stealing more than £9,000 from a police safe.
Detective Sergeant David Sharpe admitted two counts of theft by an employee when he appeared before Cambridge Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.
The force said the 40 year-old admitted taking £9,080 from a safe after the money was found to be missing from the secure unit at the Hertfordshire Police HQ, in March.
Sharpe was suspended from his post at Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit while an investigation was carried out.
He is due to be sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court on a date to be arranged.
