Former Northants special constable had indecent images of children

A former special constable who served across Northamptonshire quit the county force over crimes involving indecent images of children.

Courtney Ravenscroft, 24, was the subject of a fast-track gross misconduct hearing just before Christmas after he was convicted at Northampton Magistrates’ Court last year.

He resigned before the hearing, which was chaired by chief constable Nick Adderley, and would have been dismissed without notice had he failed to do so.

Ravenscroft, of Primrose Close in Oakham, Rutland, was sentenced on September 25 after pleading guilty to two charges of making indecent images of children

Last year magistrates sentenced him to a community order with 100 hours of unpaid work.

Ravenscroft was also told he would be on the register for sex offenders for five years.
