Andrew Gouge, who's 34 and from Bromley, was arrested in April after witnesses saw him kissing and fondling a young girl in Orpington.
Inquiries established that Gouge had first met the victim, who was aged 13 years at the time, via an internet chatroom where he engaged her in conversation. After exchanging BBM details they then met up on a number of occasions, usually in public parks, where they would kiss.
Detective Chief Inspector Pete Thomas "His conduct has caused significant harm and the investigation highlights the need to remain vigilant to the risks posed by social media and the internet in order to safeguard children."
Commander Allan Gibson, Directorate of Professional Standards, said: "He has tarnished the reputation of both the organisation and his colleagues. All members of the police service are expected to behave impeccably whilst on and off duty. Gouge did no such thing."
