A PAEDOPHILE police officer found with more than a thousand indecent images of children who also stole CS spray has been sentenced to jail for six months.

Former Surrey Police constable Simon Quinn, 43-years-old, now of The Street, Rustington made 1,100 indecent images of children and owned three extreme pornographic images.

He pleaded guilty to ten charges of making indecent images of children and one charge of possessing three extreme pornographic images. He was handed the sentence in Hove Crown Court last week and the images were confiscated.

The prosecution, authorised by the Crown Prosecution Service, followed an investigation by the Paedophile On-Line Investigation Team at Sussex Police. Quinn was arrested at his then home address in Hawthorn Close, Horsham, in August 2013.
