A Camden police officer has admitted breaking the law by repeatedly logging onto secure police databases and intelligence systems.

Sgt Christopher Scott, 43, remains on “restricted duties” with Camden Police after pleading guilty to six breaches of the Computer Misuse Act at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (August 7).

He accessed secure data on the Police National Computer and other intelligence systems six times between September 2012 and August 2013.

He will be sentenced at the same court on Thursday September 4.

Sgt Scott was charged following an investigation by Scotland Yard’s Directorate of Professional Standards.

A Met spokesman said he had not acted “for criminal or financial gain”.
