It was a newcastle policewoman Victoria Thorne in 2009, who was found working in a parlour in Bury Greater Manchester, so its not the same force as was in question, she was jailed for 15 months, not just for working as an escort whilst working as a policewoman, but for telling the owner about what other parlours were doing in the area, strange thing was, even though she would do role play and dress up in various costumes, she drew the line as dressing up as a policewoman.

No it isn't. It is however a crime to abuse a position of responsibility from the above post I'd guess she was passing on police intelligence?Also there is an offence of abuse of position in public office (or something similar). Basically if you are in a 'responsible' position, for example teacher, police officer, member of M15 then you are expected to not do anything which could bring the job into disrepute, and not to put you in a position where you could be open to abuse or blackmail yourself. Working as a prostitute is considered to put you at risk of this.

She wasn't prosecuted for being an escort. She was convicted of the common law offence of misconduct in public office. She was accessing the Police National Computer to give information about his rivals to the agency owner.

The story is about events taking place in Newcastle - reported in Hartlepool, Dewsbury, the Times of Turkey among others but it's not really connected to Hartlepool.

There's a little more detail here. The vast majority of the charges for the 3 accused relate to supplying steroids and misconduct in a public office.

I have long since given up being surprised at anything dodgy being organised by a police force. They are all, in my view, as corrupt as each other. I would never trust a police officer as far as I can piss into a gale.
