A Bedfordshire Police officer appeared in court over the weekend, charged with offences involving child sex abuse images.
Det Con Jamal Hassan, who is based at the force’s Kempston headquarters, has been charged with three counts of making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of a child, as well as perverting the course of justice.
The 36-year-old appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, and is next set to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on August 11.
Det Con Hassan has been suspended since the allegations came to light.
