The following has been posted on behalf of the family of Kelly Edgar:
Just before Christmas, a former police officer has been carpeted for recording a raunchy video of herself in the police station for her partner. PC Claire Ogden 40, filmed herself whilst pleasuring herself while on duty and wearing her police uniform.
A misconduct panel heard the footage came to light after her mobile was seized by her bosses who suspected she’d been accessing confidential data from the police computer and sharing it with her colleague as a joke. A misconduct hearing was told three personal videos were discovered on the device but the ex-officer only accepted that one was sexual.
When she was confronted her excuse was that she was probably on her lunch break and the footage had been shared with her partner during one of the covid lockdowns. She told the panel: “I went downstairs, in the office to use the bathroom, it was an ill judgement spur of the moment decision, I was caught in the moment. I don’t think I’ve experienced embarrassment and shame like it, I just wish I had not done it, I will regret this for the rest of my life”.
I only hope after her ordeal she washed her hands before she opened her lunch box to eat her sandwiches of course.
Barrister Mark Ley Morgan opened the case on behalf of Cleveland police said the former PC OGDEN shot the videos after clocking on for a shift at Redcar police station. They said there are three videos, one is accepted of her performing a sex act upon herself. There are two others she is saying are not sexual. She accepts on her part that, globally, this allegation amounts to gross misconduct and one of the images is definitely sexualised. She says “I’m not accepting, I was on duty, I
might have been on my lunch break, in my submission, that is wrong”.
When officers come on duty, they are on duty for the entirety of their shift, they are not working at ASDA where you get an hour off for lunch. They are there for the entirety of their shift and they are paid for the entire shift. She is in uniform, she is in a police station, any member of the public is going to take a dim view of a police officer who engages in that sort of sexual behaviour and recording it while on duty at the police station.
Checks on PC Ogden’s personal mobile revealed 72 images of computer screens, evidence bags and crime scenes. She told her bosses she recorded these on her personal device because the battery on her work phone was flat. She also admitted she had shared a number of shots of police computer screens with a colleague as a joke. Data protection officers later assessed 34 of the images were in the most serious red category, meaning the individuals involved including a registered sex offender were easily identifiable and could be seriously harmed if the images fell into the wrong hands.
The ex-cop was interviewed about ten specimen pictures, and in half the cases she said she has shared the images because she thought it was funny. One was two images of a registered sex offender, one a normal face shot and the other of them wearing a wig which she thought was a tiny bit funny.
She also shared an imagine of a moon pig card containing a vengeful rhyme sent from a jilted partner to the ex’s new partner which she found hilarious, the Panel heard. Other images related to incidents in which someone had called her a “dick” at work and to her amusement, had been mistaken for a male officer during a callout. Sensitive data also appeared in images she shared about her busy work schedule, and details of suspects in robbery, kidnap and sex cases.
The former PC said she shared the images by WhatsApp which was encrypted, but that did not stop the recipient sharing them with anyone else. She insisted the images never went outside the police family, adding “I’m not telling you who the person was, because it’s a police officer and that police officer I want to protect”. Mr. Ley Morgan said the only reason she protected another officer that the colleague was duty bound to report her for what she had done.
I, myself Michael Creamer, would like to know what was done with her police uniform after she was fired from the force. Has the uniform been destroyed or has it been washed and passed onto someone else? I could only imagine what she’s used her hand cuffs for and what would have happened to her truncheon before she resigned, that would’ve been used down a few dark alleys and let’s hope she hasn’t assaulted anybody else with it.
The prime minister has assured our country he will recruit another 20,000 police officers but obviously they are still not doing thorough checks.
