A former PCSO has admitted ten offences, including voyeurism and making indecent images of children.
James Land appeared before Derby Crown Court today (Friday 8 April), where he pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images, one count of possessing extreme images and six counts of voyeurism.
Land (43), of Abergele, Conwy, was arrested in May 2021 after the force identified that he had made indecent images. He was immediately suspended from duty while the investigation was carried out and resigned from the force earlier this month.
The case was adjourned for sentencing on Monday May 23.
Deputy Chief Constable Kate Meynell said: “There is no place in Derbyshire Constabulary for anyone who commits such serious crimes as this.
“We, like the communities we serve, are shocked and disgusted by Land’s actions. He was arrested and suspended at the earliest opportunity and gross misconduct proceedings are continuing now that the criminal case is concluded.
“We will seek to place him on the barred list, which will prevent him from working for other police forces and within other certain professions.”
