A serving police detective appeared in court today charged with fifteen counts of breaching data protection laws.
Adrian Moir, 45, Croxley Green, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire made no plea at Basildon magistrates court this morning (Thursday).
The charges date from March 2005 to February 2011 and refer to breaches allegedly made in Watford, Hertfordshire.
Moir was bailed to appear again on February 8th next year.
A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Constabulary said:
“A serving officer from Hertfordshire Constabulary has been charged with a series of data protection offences and is due to appear before magistrates in Basildon on February 8, 2012.
“Matters of this nature are taken very seriously and the charges follow an internal investigation by staff from the force’s Professional Standards Unit.
“The officer, who is based at Watford is currently suspended whilst the matter is progressed through the courts.”
