Former police officer Adrian Pogmore jailed over helicopter sex video

Former police officer Adrian Pogmore jailed over helicopter sex video

A "sex-obsessed" former police officer sobbed in court yesterday as he was jailed for spying on naked women from a £2 million force helicopter. The camera's technology is powerful enough to read a licence plate from two miles away.

Pogmore, of Whiston, Rotherham, admitted four counts of misconduct in a public office last month relating to four incidents between 2007 and 2012.

Judge Kelson told Pogmore, who was in tears as he was sentenced: "In short, you used a £2 million helicopter which costs something like 1,000 dollars (sic) an hour to run to advance your own sexual curiosities when it should have been detecting crime". After a 22 year career, he has been relieved of his duties within the police in South Yorkshire.

The judge said Pogmore's actions "were offensive and invasive" and described him a "rogue police officer".

Adrian Pogmore, 50, used his position as an air observer to film his swinger friends having sex in their gardens.

Another woman filmed naked without her knowledge told police she felt sick when she saw the footage.

But the United States works closely with the group as the best ground force in Syria to defeat Islamic State (IS) jihadists. Still, both sides believe war is inevitable, and the USA efforts are only going to hold off that fight for so long.

But "in place to prevent and detect crime, you commit a crime", added the magistrate.

"The helicopter was not there on police business and had no legitimate reason to circle the property during which time the camera was used to record and zoom in on the couple and in particular the naked genitalia of the female", said Mr. Wright. "Nobody is above the law", said the judge.

In 2015, a picture tweeted by a police helicopter team showing comedian Michael McIntyre standing in a London street was investigated by the Information Commissioner's Office for a possible breach of data protection laws.

The couple, who are not being named for legal reasons, said they became involved with swinging after visiting a Sheffield sex club.

"Notwithstanding today's verdicts concerning the four defendants who were acquitted, we will now continue with misconduct proceedings internally against the other South Yorkshire Police officers", said a spokesperson.
