Yet more sex addicted Sussex Police officers, have been dismissed from the force, having had sex on duty.
If the sexual conduct of anyone else, in any other organization in the UK, were on the same level of severity as Sussex police; they’d be on the Sex Registration List by now.
Rob Leet, who quit before the hearing, and Sarah Porter were found guilty of gross misconduct at a disciplinary hearing.
Its an acknowledged trend within Sussex police force, for police officers to quit before their hearings in order to escape misconduct charges.
Is that why their ex Chief Constable, Martin Richards retired early?
Sussex police are wide open to extortion by organised crime. No wonder the world famous crime writer Peter James, claims Brighton is the city of choice for crime lords to settle and raise their families.

Is it really too far a stretch of the imagination for a police officer’s private sexual perversion to be discovered by a criminal, and for that criminal to blackmail that officer; threatening him or her with exposure if they didn’t do exactly what they tell them to do?
From the list below; their choice of sexually perverted police officers is pretty extensive.
Chief Inspector Rob Leet and Sergeant Sarah Porter met for sexual liaisons while on duty, and have rightly been found guilty of gross misconduct and dismissed from the force.
They were found to have conducted a relationship while at work and misused the Sussex Police system to arrange their meetings.
This reminds me of Inspector Lee Lyons who rang 11 prostitutes in just one hour while on duty. Clearly Lyons was the force’s pimp, arranging prostitutes for his colleagues.

With moral at an all-time low level, isn’t it any wonder their police officers turned to sex to raise their spirits!
The pair exchanged more than 700 messages, including hidden text of a “graphic sexual nature” in emails and acronyms, and tried to hide the trysts from their colleague, the hearing was told.
Maintaining a trend in Sussex Police to retire early to escape misconduct charges, Leet quit the force last month, before he could face the allegations at a police misconduct hearing.
Throwing a 40-year-career between them down the drain, Both Leet and Porter denied having sex on duty between August 2015 and February 2017.
Leet (22 years in the police) is a married father-of-four and Porter (18 years in the police) has a daughter with her ex-husband, also a police officer.
Lying to cover up their tracks, Porter admitted kissing Leet but said it did not amount to sexual activity, while the disciplinary panel in Lewes, East Sussex, found the allegation was proved at the hearing, and amounted to gross misconduct.
Porter was present at the hearing, while Leet was absent.
Chairwoman Victoria Goodfellow said: “The public would be appalled to learn two police officers were found in sexual activity at a time when they were supposed to be protecting them and upholding the law.”
Announcing the dismissal, Ms Goodfellow told Porter: “Your actions are likely to have caused harm to the reputation of Sussex Police and the policing profession.
“Your actions were for sexual gratification. You used your operational independence to further your relationship with Chief Inspector Leet and concealed your relationship, although we accept you were led in this by Chief Inspector Leet.”
Failing to Serve and Protect
Porter was found to have failed to attend a fatal crash on 3 July 2017, when she was un-contactable for 10 minutes.
Leet was also found to have taken advantage of a domestic abuse victim, who was “potentially vulnerable” by having sex with her.
How many other sexual perverts remain undetected within Sussex Police?
Someone is out to blackmail their current Chief Constable Giles York, but all mention of it has been erased from the internet.
Lies, lies, lies; its all lies. They are all compulsive liars.
Leet denied the accusations that he had developed an inappropriate relationship with a victim of crime while on duty, and denied the relationship with Porter.
At the hearing it was said Leet had an inappropriate relationship with the woman, referred to as Miss A, between November 2014 and January 2016, after meeting at a domestic abuse action group he chaired as a district commander.
Amy Clarke, representing Sussex Police, said what began as a friendship developed into a “sexual relationship which went on for some time”.
The pair met up while he was on duty, including at Miss A’s home, and exchanged messages of an “explicit sexual nature”, the panel was told.
Ms Clarke said: “Miss A is firmly of the belief that she was, in effect, taken advantage of by Mr Leet.
“There is also a clear gulf in power there. It should have been abundantly clear to Mr Leet that there was a potential vulnerability there that should not have been exploited.”
Ms Clarke said both Leet and Porter should be dismissed.
Porter returned to work in December 2017. Her lawyer Stephen Chippeck said she had faced an “agonising” wait for proceedings, as the allegations were made two-and-a-half years ago.
A letter from Chief Inspector Andy Gooch about Porter said: “I have found Police Sergeant Porter to be respectful and courteous throughout my own dealings with her.
“I have confidence in her ability and in her current performance.”
Mr Chippeck said Porter’s work involves “horrendous” duties in the road traffic unit.
The hearing was told she once received a certificate of congratulations and a humanitarian award for “putting herself in harm’s way” to rescue a man from the River Ouse, saving his life.
Mr Chippeck asked the panel to deal with her case in a “proportionate way” adding: “Allow her to continue to do the job she both loves and is good at.”
This shows failure of leadership at the top of Sussex police.
