A former police officer has pleaded guilty to two charges of misconduct in public office for having "inappropriate relationships" with two women he met while working.
Paul Chadwick admitted the offences in a brief hearing at Newport Crown Court.
The court heard Chadwick entered into two inappropriate relationships for periods in 2020.
He met both women during the course of his duties, one relationship lasted between January and April, and the other between dates in May.
The 51-year-old, who served as a constable with Gwent Police until he retired in June, was released on unconditional bail until he is sentenced on December 13.
He was charged following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
Following the court hearing, Gwent Police says they will be considering future disciplinary proceedings in conjunction with the IOPC.
Deputy Chief Constable Amanda Blakeman said: “Every day the vast majority of our officers work hard to deliver an excellent service and to build the confidence of our communities.
“Individuals like Chadwick let their colleagues and communities down by not upholding our high standards of behaviour that the force and public expects from police officers. There is no place for this type of behaviour in Gwent Police.”
