A former Thames Valley Police constable has been jailed after being convicted of misconduct in public office.
54-year-old Martin McElvenna from Wills Walk in Northampton was convicted by a jury on 31 July at Southwark Crown Court following a nine-week trial.
In September 2013, McElvenna was working as a PC in Milton Keynes, he accessed the Police National Computer (PNC) in order to assist in a conspiracy to smuggle drugs into the UK.
He was found not guilty on two separate counts of misconduct in public office and the jury failed to reach a decision on a third.
McElvenna was dismissed from Thames Valley Police in November 2013, following a misconduct hearing.
He was today sentenced to 18 months in prison.
