    Unfortunately the way the Police are being treated by this Police hating Government, who have no respect for our health and safety as a result of cutting budgets, and reducing conditions of service and pensions why should the Police feel wanted or needed when every day they are attacked humiliated and blamed for the failure of the Criminal 'NON' Justice system. You can only push a system so far then it begins to crumble.
    unfortunately though, the old bill have not cast themselves in the best light, of late..... much of the goverments attack recently was entirely justified"

Officer in court ‘for misusing police data’

First published in News

A SOUTH Essex policeman has appeared in court, accused of abusing police computer systems for his own ends.

PC Stephen Tilley, 36, of Millview Meadows, Rochford, who is based at Rayleigh police station, appeared before Chelmsford magistrates on Wednesday, charged with misconduct in a public office.

He is accused of making personal use of information he got from police computer systems between May 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.

During the short court appearance, Tilley, who wore a grey shirt and black trousers, did not enter a plea. The case was adjourned until August 18, when he is due before Chelmsford Crown Court.

An Essex Police spokesman said: “Stephen Tilley has been suspended from duty and he is going through the courts process.

“His future won’t be decided until after the court case has concluded.

“He was suspended in July 2013 from his role as a police constable based in Rayleigh.”

A spokesman for the Independent Police Complaints Commission confirmed it was supervising the Essex Police investigation.
