Corrupt Cambridgeshire PCSO jailed for five years

A Police Community Support Officer who leaked confidential intelligence to a drug dealer has been jailed for five years today.

Gurpal Shehri, 28, passed on information to the man who he had met at the Fitness Station gym in Dogsthorpe, Peterborough.

Shehri jotted down notes from the Cambridgeshire police Camnet system that later were found at his home. Text messages between the PCSO and the drug dealer had been deleted

Jailing him at St Albans Crown Court, Judge John Plumstead said Shehri had "been a spy in the camp." He added

"It was an abuse of the public's trust in the office holder. This was treacherous behaviour towards the organisation you belonged to.

The public is entitled to regard police officers and PCSOs as straight - those found not to be have to pay a high price."
