Five Merseyside police officers face misconduct hearings over “inappropriate” texts found on sacked inspector’s phone

FIVE police officers are facing disciplinary action after a huge probe into “inappropriate” text messages.

The investigation was launched as part of the inquiry into the activities of sacked Chief Inspector Mark Brew earlier this year. Brew, 47, was suspended while an internal inquiry took place and his work mobile phone was analysed as part of the probe.

The ECHO understands as well as implicating Brew and leading to his dismissal, the contents of certain text messages sparked the further investigation of other officers. It is believed at one point up to 28 texts, some said to be from officers in other forces, were examined. Merseyside Police today confirmed five officers were heading for misconduct hearings as a result of the discoveries.

This video was recently sent to me. I sent it to various media outlets and Merseyside Police (who had already seen it last year and took no action against the officer concerned). This is the response from Merseyside Police.
A Merseyside Police spokesperson, said: "During the evening of Monday, 23 July (2012), Merseyside Police was made aware of a video on YouTube that appears to show a police officer behaving in an inappropriate manner.

"The footage was obtained and an immediate investigation was launched by the Force’s Professional Standards Department. “A 31-year-old serving police officer has been placed on restrictive duties whilst the investigation into the matter is conducted.

A high ranking Inspector with Merseyside Police force's Matrix gun squad has been sacked over allegations that he used his Police issued mobile phone to send and exchange dirty texts with colleagues and download internet porn.

Inspector Mark Brew, was also alleged to have left a conference to meet with a married woman and got a junior constable to drive from Merseyside to London to pick him up rather than him get the train.

Brew is said to have admitted using his work iPhone and Blackberry to trawl the net for porn and to swap ‘sex texts’ with two woman, thought to be colleagues within Merseyside police.

The Inspector was suspended last year amid a shake-up of Matrix after it was revealed damning photos of a search team fooling around in the home of a suspect when they were supposed to be looking for clues.

Six officers – Sgt Charlie Tennant and five constables – were later sacked by the force.
