Paedophile police sergeant’s crimes are ‘shocking example of predatory behaviour’
A serving “predatory” police officer has been jailed after being found guilty of child sex offences.
Sgt Michael Grigg, 34, of Hertfordshire Police, was sentenced to six and a half years at Harrow Crown Court.
A jury found him guilty on two counts of penetrative sexual activity with a child between 2007 and 2012.
Police said he committed the offences while working as a cadet leader and his actions “amounted to a gross abuse of his position”.
He has been placed on the sex offenders’ register for life and is subject to a sexual harm prevention order.
Grigg, formerly of Hatfield, was arrested as part of an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) managed investigation conducted by Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Safeguarding Command, police said.
